Eclectic Picks: Batch 456

Lovell Telescope with giant eye projected on to the satellite dish

Every week Signal Committee present 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.

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

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.

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. Congrats! have a nice summer break! Hope to c y’all again on the Eclectic Picks!!

  2. So glad like things like this exists for new and independent artists. We need to stand together and grow our community and get original music to audiences.
    That’s the aim of Fledlging. To help artists grow together away from the majors.
    Commercial radio is a horrible, monotonous beast with no individuality, DJs have no chance to imprint their taste and char pasted on the songs being played. It’s just part of the machine.

    Thanks you Fresh On The Net and well done to all the artists working hard to succeed.

  3. John Joseph Blackburn

    quiet a few favourites from this list… and hooray some available on apple music too!
    HAYDN DOUET LUKIES “experimental percussionist working with highly resonant metal and glass instruments” flippin eck! Well it sounds fascinating
    MC TANNOCK – really interesting track with all the orchestral remnants, keep up the good work Craig
    THE X – aw, can’t believe this didn’t get through to the listening post. Loved the subtle instrumentation, not over-bearing, just perfect.
    SIMON MóS – I’m a sucker for short repeating patterns if they’re attractive, this one certainly is. Great track.
    NEIL FOSTER – beautiful soundscape with lush slow chord changes which breathe constant life into the piece…

  4. Thanks so much for selecting my release for Eclectic Picks! I’m really enjoying the playlist. My track ‘I Know You Know’ is out this Friday 5th August and you can pre-save it here: https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/caitlinlm/i-know-you-know

    Thanks again, and I hope to see you all soon <3
