The Signal: EP135

The Signal: EP135 – Exactly 45 minutes of music specifically designed to introduce you to your new life as a member of the orb’s collective of special helpers.

In this episode, we’ve got cut-ups, hip hop from France, the sounds of summoning cows & gods, dub blues(!), psychobilly, pop, face-melting rock from Belgium, and a song about tossing your ex into a volcano.

The Signal: EP134

The Signal: EP134 – Exactly 45 minutes of the music you didn’t think you needed. You thought you needed to spend your time learning how to fight with switchblades. Nope. Music. 45 minutes. That’s the key, it turns out.

(I mean, if you’ve got the switchblade already, don’t let me discourage you. Get real good at it. Carve your way through the urban jungles. But when you have some down time, I’ve got some beats and whatnot for you.)

This time out we’ve got dub music from Jamaica, electronic music created by an Iranian-American in Austin with a partner in Portugal via the internet, spooky songs about witches and Frankenstein, dangerous women, jazz, percussion, humming, and sorrow.

The Signal: EP130 – Mesmerizing sounds from beyond the stars. You know. In the sense that we’re all from beyond the stars, made of star stuff, Big Bang-kinda business. We base all of our hyperbole on science around here. It’s 45 minutes of music from around the world, available for download for a limited time only.

This time out, we’ve got global bass/trap from Chicago, grime from the UK, religious music from Ghana, afrobeat from Nigeria, ska from Spain, retrosynth, vaporwave, rock tinged with depression, and a guided meditation. What more could you want?

The Signal: EP129 – 45 minutes of music from around the world, shouted back at the world with technology.  A secret garden for those having a rough time. There are a lot of rough times going around.  We’ve got dubstep from the UK and movie information from Wisconsin’s past, bedroom pop from Paris and vaporwave from… the internet, I guess? We’ve got drum and bass and rhythm and blues, gospel and hip hop, beats and questions.

As with all of our previous mixes, the mp3 file is going to be available only for a limited time, so if you want it, grab  yourself a copy.

The Signal: EP128 – 45 minutes of music from around the world, put together for bird-brains and the avian-adjacent. This time out, we’ve got sounds from the Middle East, cough syrup music from Spain, vocals and single string magic from Africa, the sounds of tennis rackets, rockabilly from Denmark, dub from Hungary, the saddest blues beyond words, and an industrial song reworked into Dylan-esque melancholy. Let’s get those wings flapping!

As with all of our previous 127 mixes, the file is going to be available only for a limited time, so if you want it, grab  yourself a copy. The track list is embedded in the file itself, if you want to go hunt down the original artists— and I hope you do— but if you want the best experience, you should sign up to join The Tuned In.
