Author Tyler Weaver of Parenthetical Recluse, a fascinating blog about music, movies, literature, running, Ohio election signage, and so much more, has asked me to contribute a monthly recommendation (probably, mostly, music, but maybe other stuff?) for his MacroParentheticals newsletter. The newsletter comes out every Sunday and is chock full of Tyler’s own current media consumption, musings, “fascinations, perspirations, and whatever else comes to mind,” plus pictures of Tyler’s adorable dogs. For September and October, Tyler asked me for some of my virtual venues to find new music. Here’s part 1, published last Sunday:
There are seemingly endless places to hear new music to the point that it can be overwhelming. Luckily, there are expert curators of indie music who continually introduce me to new and wonderful sounds. Following are some of my favorites on internet radio – most focus on electronic music since that’s my jam, but some also cover folk, jazz, blues, and classical.
Radio Stations: Resonance Extra (The Wire: Adventures in Sound and Music, A Duck In A Tree)… Radio Dark Tunnel (melodywhore’s SITUATION 47, Brainvoyager’s Electronic Fusion)… Mad Wasp Radio (Lone Frequencies, The Magic Window)… Skylab Radio (The Space Station, Mixed Feelings)… Sine FM (Kites and Pylons, The Séance)… and Camp Radio (where my show, Electrojunkyard, lives – as does the awesome If/Then/Else, Auditory Illusions, The Silence of Noise, The Wire, Notes in Dialogue, and Objects Forever live).
Radio programs: In Memory of John Peel on KFFP FM… Strategic Tape Reserve on New New World Radio… The Moderns on Radio Regent… Bepi Crespan Presents on CITR… For the Record, Bombshell Radio and WERA-LP Arlington… Bandcloud on Dublin Digital Radio… Night Tides on KCUR… Beatbox Saboteurs on Dandelion Radio… Dark Train on Warminster Community Radio… and Gated Canal Community Radio on Reform Radio.
Part II will be out in two weeks and includes my favorite podcasts. As always, signup for the newsletters, and you won’t regret it. I’ve heard much wonderful new music thanks to Tyler’s discerning ear, and you certainly will too.
