Eclectic Picks: Batch 405

abstract image of blue nodes connected by lines

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 10th 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. If you used to write band names on your pencil case at school, you’ll probably like our playlists.

A FEW WORDS ON THIS WEEK’S PICKS

We have no rules on how many tracks we pick. Last week, a tidy collection of 10 tracks made the cut. This week, we ended up with a twin disc special edition with 23 tracks. But the quality remains the same. In particular, a couple of ‘post-rock’ tracks caught our ears this week. Perhaps Mogwai’s latest album has been inspiring some of you. That aside, there’s plenty of sublime stuff in there from trip-hop, electronic to atmospheric/ambient tracks.

If you got this far, give the full list a blast and drop a comment below with your thoughts!

RADIO OPPORTUNITIES

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 chrisinthemoog@gmail.com, together with artwork &/or band pic and your Twitter handle).

PLAYLIST ARCHIVE

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.
