THESE HAVE BEEN RELEASED THIS YEAR pt1

Well, it’s coming towards the end of 2022, and this is the time that many of us will sit and look back and wonder where it all went.

I used to do a thing called I Don’t Do Lists, but someone pointed out that technically they were, even though I have never had placings, best of, worst etc, so this year I am just putting out my end of year listening’s from 2022.

As ever, no positions, favourites, best of…. that, dear listeners and followers is for you to decide.

Here are a few from the beginning of the year.

PLAYLIST #198 – S IS FOR pt2

Eclectic Electronic Soundscapes –
To make sure that I’m giving space for as many artists as possible and to try and discover new ones, I’m trying to make playlists of artists alphabetically throughout the year on all platforms.
Here is the letter S but it’s only the tip of the iceberg. I’m sure that I will have to make another.


As with all the playlists there are no preferences. 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 on Playlit #198 are Alice Shields, Nichola Scrutton, SONAMB, Swan Meat, Les Femmes Savantes, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Sunmoonstar, Silentaria, Alexandra Spence, Sky High Diamonds ,salama, Sandunes, Sarah Schachner, SOMA, annAStereo, Mene Savasta, Ola Saad, Sternenmaschinebine, E.Lynn.S, STRUCTURE, SaarSew, Sound Awakener, sadfem, Strie, Sister Sai, Tomoko Sauvage.

Reblog – Loraine James ~ Building Something Beautiful for Me — a closer listen

NYC in the 60s, 70s and 80s was a melting pot of different cultural genres and a meeting point for important figures in contemporary music. The scene was filled with many artists whose influential body of work has been written about and extensively taught in formal academic curricula across the world.  On the flip side, […]

Loraine James ~ Building Something Beautiful for Me — a closer listen

I have loved Julius Eastman’s Femenine since first hearing it earlier this year and this release by Lorraine James is indeed building on something beautiful, taking the essence of Julius Eastman’s art and making something reflective, minimalist and new.

SEPTMBER LISTENING

Autumn is here and the time seems to be passing very quickly, helped, of course, by the following listening.

AUGUST 2022 LISTENING

During this long hot summer, like many, I have been preoccupied with other seemingly more pressing things than my website. Indeed, I am still trying to work out what to do with this site and also how to continue with Feminatronic.

That aside I have had a month of listening to music at night-time when it’s been cooler and often watching the sun set.

Here is Augusts listening, mostly (but not all) introspective, meditative and go well with the setting of the sun –

Longlisten #9

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 swantje lichtenstein, Brona Martin, Liz Helman, Julia Hanadi aLabed, and Marta de Pascalis

FOLLOW MY LEADER #16

Eclectic Electronic Soundscapes –


I’ve always added this short note to all the playlists –
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….
but I thought I’d put it into practice myself.
I started with the first artist and then followed the sound trail to other connected artists.

There is no preference on first choice or the sound trail but the playlist is always eclectic and it does give a chance for artists to be heard who may slip through the net : )


Beginning with Susan Campos, artists are jjjolll, Concepcion Huerta, Mabe Fratti, Slvj, Taticocteauselfie, Itzel Itzel, Teixido, Montse Perez Lima, Ana Mora, Klang Reverie, dibuk, S Ø M A , Marcela Lucatelli and Carmen Canale.
