The Signal: EP083 - Stung in the face by love! We're celebrating Presidents Day by celebrating Valentine's Day by celebrating the horrors of super science! With music!
It's the usual 45 minutes of whatever I'm finding interesting (or some things I have historically found interesting) or something that fit the 2-minute-20-seconds gap I had in my master plan for the mix. (Okay, there's only one of that third bit on the list, to be honest.)
The file is up for a limited amount of time. Notes (if any) are below the cut. Tracklist is in the id3 tags. We got some rock, some stuff with beats, some hip-hop, something going backwards, a theme song, and a scary computer voice. That's pretty much all you need, right?
1. I have never played the game this is from but I have heard lots of sound samples that I find terrifying.
2. From a pretty interesting period in electronica: the 90s! The album this comes from had, I felt, some really interesting compositions that obviously weren't meant for the dance floor as was the focus for most of their contemporaries. ALSO: This track incorporates vocal melody bits from the soundtrack to Blade Runner! So also, if you have time, go listen to that soundtrack because it is pretty awesome. So is the movie. Even with the editing/continuity problems.
3. Been going through a bunch of tracks from this guy/group but haven't found a second single that matches this one yet.
7. Oh man. That fuzzy sound! So good!
8. Heard this in someone else's mix and drove myself nuts for awhile trying to figure out where I had heard it. How the story ended: I figured it out.
10. Sometimes I almost ask "what happened to this guy?" and then I remember the answer was "he got bored with hip hop".
11. In college I sprang for this box set from a historically important industrial label out of Chicago because at the time I liked industrial music-- well, over time it turns out I just liked samples and electronic sounds and distortion and other music genres explored that space more than industrial did-- and this was one of the few tracks that's stayed with me.
12. This song fit a gap in the mix perfectly.
13. I wish I was more interested in this band's studio sound, but I'm just not.
