Eclectic Picks: Batch 407

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 24th 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 75 minutes of Eclectic Picks.  One track screams Nirvana, another Lemon Jelly, one Depeche Mode and I think there’s definitely a Talking Heads in there too.  If you think you know which tracks I’m talking about, pop a comment below.

Last week I mentioned Bliss Report, but Elbrook Court must also 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!

  4. Particularly like Tenebran, Semitonal, and Glassmasterer. The Okkam track freaked me out.. I needed a reprise of the serene first few minutes but didn’t get it…. really impressive though.
