There's only one more day to listen, but if you see this in time, you might want to listen to the new album by Jonsi, of Sigur Ros. The album is called "Go," the first two tracks are exuberant and amazing pop music, production is by Nico Muhly (who's appeared on a Signal mix) and it's all streaming here if you're interested:
(I mention the first two tracks because I'm listening to it myself right now. It may very well stay this amazing the whole way through. But if not, at least it's two songs in a row that are gorgeous.)
The Signal: EP065 - Songs of love, invisibility, and mosquitoes. Okay, maybe invisibility isn't prominent, but the other two are present.
Exciting news! Thanks to a new website called (in proper Web 2.0 style) Fiverr, I got hooked up with a professional voice actor named Art Carlson who supplied the podcast with an intro and outro bumper. I got the sound files this morning and was so eager to share them, I threw this mix together when I should have been sleeping. (Oh man, it's getting late. Tomorrow might hurt.) If you want to see what the world has to offer you for five bucks, check the site out.
Usual details apply. File is up for a limited time only. Track listing is in the id3 tags. This mix is a gift to you, the handful of friends who frequent this site. I hope you like it. Notes are below.
The Signal: EP064 - A selection of music not-exactly-guaranteed to lead to mind-controlled happiness and the absence of will, but take a shot and try it anyway. We got highs and lows, ladies and gentlemen, highs and lows. And a requisite cover version.
All the notes are after the jump. The file is available for a limited time only. Tracklist is in the id3 tags. The world keeps on turning.
I found out about Mutamassik via DJ /rupture and his split album with her stands as one of the best things he's put out. I loved her first album and was thrilled to find out that not only is there new music out from Mutamassik, it's being given away for free.
Pop over to wayne and wax to download Mutamassik's That Which Death Cannot Destroy. It's electronic with Middle Eastern sounds, some fuzz and static, and probably a fair amount of awesome.
The Signal: EP063 music for tough guys and tough streets! But! Even though they hold uzis... every once in awhile this crummy world makes 'em cry! And they're not afraid to cry! Heck no! But they do bust every one of those tears in the chops! So they don't get any ideas!
Okay, enough exclamation points. It's the usual deal, good people. File's available for a limited time. Track list is in the id3 tags. Notes are behind the cut... unless you followed a link here, in which case, here are the notes:
