Eclectic Picks: Batch 406

abstract image with 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 17th 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

This week, we ended up with a tidy 60 minutes of Eclectic Picks. One track in there sounded very ‘Jim Morrison’ I thought – so let’s see if anyone can pick that one out before JJB or Leo spot it.

In other news, I haven’t been keeping count, but I think Bliss Report must be a contender for the artist featuring most regularly on Eclectic Picks.

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

  1. Loving all the tracks in the pick. So much talent out there, it’s a privilege to be amongst such great music.

  2. Martyn

    This is a really great playlist… And I’m not saying that because I have a song on here… This reminds me of listening to Radio 1 late at night in the 90s, when you’d hear some truly innovative and exciting music. There are bands on this playlist that I am 100% going to be deep diving into – especially Priestess – I adored her song.

  3. Thanks chaps. Enjoyed all.. particularly Bliss report – Genesis…
