The Signal: EP058 - Relax, you're not crazy. We've pulled together for you a series of musical compositions custom suited to your needs. Take a deep breath, relax, and sink into The Signal.
The file is available via the link above for a limited period of time. The password is: signal The tracklisting is in the id3 tags. Notes are after the jump. Questions are not responded to. Dinah's in the kitchen with someone we know, but would prefer to remain unnamed.
We hope you enjoy the mix, but if you don't, that's fine, because we'll enjoy it enough for all of you.
1. It was fun playing with the levels of the sound in the background, moving it up to increase creepiness and then back down.
2. Just got this one the day before I started the mix, so it went in without having listened to more than the first 20 seconds. I just thought... "Yeah, that's a good start!"
3. I've been listening to this one for awhile, but passed it over for the last few Signals. Wasn't sure you guys would dig it. But since I didn't stop listening to it, and continued to love its quotation of Radiohead lyrics, I broke down and slipped it in. Especially since it transitions well to...
4. A remix that features the same lyrics quoted above. See? Some thought goes into these.
6. The song needed this treatment to firm it up a bit. A cover that I probably like better than the original.
9. Sent from a Signal listener. Thanks, gdm! It fit perfectly.
10. Another Signal listener hooked me up with music from these folks, which then reminded me that I actually had a CD of theirs... which had more tracks than I'd been sent. Was able to return the favor. Great stuff! I love the bossa nova feel.
11. Haven't listened to this group in awhile. Their lead singer said she never listened to Billie Holiday. Kinda hard to believe.
13. Really? I've only featured one track by this artist and it was all the way back in EP12? I listened to this guy's music a lot until he lost interest in crate-digging.
14. You might be tempted to laugh when you recognize the tune, but give it a chance. After the initial snicker, the artist's sincere attempt to sell the song may actually win you over.
