Every week Signal Committee create an Eclectic Picks playlist. All tracks are selected from the full inbox of 200 tracks that are submitted each week to Fresh On The Net. Check out their picks from Monday 3rd May below.
WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR?
Our playlists are orientated to the alternative music fan. Lyrics are not essential, abstract ideas are embraced and the fusing of different genres is encouraged.
A FEW WORDS ON THIS WEEK’S PICKS
This week we ended up with a tidy collection of 10 tracks, less than 50 minutes of eclectic picks, so no excuses for not checking out the full list! All new names to Eclectic Picks this week, except for Serge Bulat and Apple Lake who are both returning from last week to make it ‘two in a row’ – eyeing up a hat-trick next week no doubt.
If you got this far, give the full list a blast and drop a comment below with your thoughts!

We all have ambitions to get on national radio, but in the meantime there are loads of great, independent radio stations that are always looking for new music of the alternative variety. They offer no promises, but the following hosts tell me they that, if you made this list, they’d like you to get in touch to be considered for their show:
- Chris Watts, presenter of “In The Moog” online on NCCR (UK) (Twitter: @chriswatts1965. Electronic/synth-based tracks (mp3 &/or WAV) to firstname.lastname@example.org, together with artwork &/or band pic and your Twitter handle).

All tracks featured above will be added to our rolling Spotify playlist for 2021. We will also ‘follow’ you on Spotify to keep track of any future releases – which will appear on our revolving weekly playlist. As for our ‘all time favourites’, well, there’s a playlist for that too.
