I DON’T DO LISTS BUT…pt1

Every year sites, reviewers, podcasts and media, post long lists of the best of this years releases and I find this problematic for many reasons but a major one is they often miss those well under the radar releases concentrating on particular popular genres, artists and labels, as well as creating subjective lists that cause divided opinions.

I’ve always just tried to post as many of the years releases that I’ve come across during December and this year is no different. I will be posting them here, on Twitter and Instagram.

My posts are not exhaustive and omit unwittingly many many releases but given that, without any preferences, rank or order here are the first collection…


















IT’S HALLOWEEN…

A couple of suggestions for tonight’s ambience –

Eclectic Electronic Soundscapes-
“There is no exquisite beauty… without some strangeness in the proportion.”
― Edgar Allan Poe
There is beauty in darkness and walls of sound.

Here’s a couple of today’s posts –

LONGLISTEN

Eclectic Electronic Soundscapes –
Sometimes tracks are just too long for the usual playlist I put together so I decided to put together bite sized playlists for longer tracks.
Bite sized in number of artists but not scrimping on the length and quality of the listening : )
Take some time and immerse in the sound waves.

As with all the playlists, they are jumping off points to discoveries. They are not meant to be definitive. Just let some of the tracks play onto the next….follow up on “sounds like”….see who’s following, many artists follow other artists….

Artists are Andrea Parkins, OR poiesis, Pom2B, Susana Lopez and Sabina Hyoju Ahn.
