The Signal: EP056 - Reminding those machines they work for us, damn it. Hey, folks, welcome back. We've got a brand new mix waiting for you full of everything you like about The Signal, as well as the requisite amount of stuff you don't like, just to toughen you up. Help you grow hair on your chest. Quit crying-- if the kids see you crying, they'll tear you apart. Little animals.
The file is available for an unspecified limited time. If you're curious about the tracks in the mix, I've put the track list in the id3 tags. If you're new around here, I do that so I don't have a list of tracks on my site sitting around for Google to find. These are for us. To heck with strangers using search engines. Who needs 'em.
Notes are after this jump right here -->
Realized while I was in DC that I forgot to include the track list in EP055 when I originally posted it. An updated version is now available, so if you're interested at all in what's inside the musical sausage casing, you can download the new version and see the track list in the id3 tags.
The Signal: EP055 - Back again, lining up tunes all in a row for you to one day listen to, if you download it in time. We've got a dubstep collaboration blended with thoughts about time and the universe, the requisite odd cover versions, some garage rock and surf, and other oscillations that make the atoms in the air shimmy up next to you eardrum, which your brain interprets as music. Weird, that.
File is available for a limited time. Like, a month. Tracklist is in the id3 tags. Notes are below the MORE cut. I hope you like it.
The Dreams - A BBC Radiophonic Workshop episode that's almost 30 minutes of average citizens of the UK talking about what they've dreamt. Their recollections have been cut up and re-edited, grouped by theme, and backed with eerie electronic sounds created by Delia Derbyshire, the groundbreaking electronic artist who composed the theme to Doctor Who (among other accomplishments).
It's haunting stuff. Thanks to the Sovereign for the recommendation.
Screaming rockabilly from Los Marauders for a cable access show: I'd never heard of them before seeing a piece of this video linked on WFMU's weblog, but holy cats! They've got energy to spare!
