Eclectic Picks: Batch 443

Every week Signal Committee present an Eclectic Picks playlist. All tracks are selected from the full inbox of up to 200 tracks that are submitted each week to Fresh On The Net. This week, to close the show before the Easter Break, we thought we would do the honours ourselves.

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

A little bird told me it was an insanely good inbox this week. They weren’t wrong…

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).
  • Lucas Gil, presenter of Supernova on Glitterbeam Radio (Twitter @lucasgil, apply by his website here)
  • Joe Figueira of North Manchester FM (Twitter @moretonguy, apply with MP3, short bio & twitter handle by e-mail to joefigueira@yahoo.co.uk)

POLITE REQUEST TO ALL ARTISTS

If you’re on Twitter, IG etc make sure you put a link to your social media pages on your soundcloud profile. It’ll save curators, moderators, radio folk etc lots of time letting you know you made the cut. On the other hand, maintaining anonymity might lead to a cult following in a remote location that you don’t find out about until someone from Svalbard FM hunts you down 20 years later to do a Searching For Sugar Man-esque documentary.

Signal Committee

Signal Committee are a four piece band from Bury, England. Their influences include the likes of New Order, Radiohead, Bowie, Jon Hopkins and Massive Attack.

  1. Am only 4 tracks in and this playlist absolutely rocks my world. Just my kind of thing!

  2. Great list that really lives up to its Eclectic Picks title. 🙂

  3. Indeed, we were spoilt for choice, and a real contender for the strongest inbox we’ve heard since we joined the party!

  4. wow, that was some listen. Loved the Tunnel Visions track, also Freya Lily and that Gabriele Pribetti track was insane (in a good way). Ta very much.
