Eclectic Picks: Batch 504

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.

INTRODUCING CH’LU

Ch’Lu has had 4 tracks selected by the various curators within the freshonthenet team from her latest album, The Goddess Within, so we figured she’s earned a slot as this week’s guest curator. That aside, it is to Ch’Lu’s credit that she persevered with the playlist this week…

A FEW WORDS FROM CH’LU

This last week has brought unforeseeable violence and suffering in parts of the world, and I personally have lost close family members in Israel. So my track choices for this Eclectic Picks are not only those that I couldn’t help but listen to numerous times, that spoke to me, but also those that authentically expressed strong emotion and/or offered comfort.

The more people listen to this playlist, the more exposure unsigned artists receive. So spread the word!

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:

If you are are radio presenter/DJ looking for someone to do all the hard work for you in filtering out the more alternative tunes hitting the FOTN inbox each, week, just give Signal Committee a shout!
