Calling all Happy Elf fans...

New release today on WM Recordings WM048, Together by Happy Elf. This is a great release. Analogue Synthesizer Heaven, liberal 80s reference brought nicely into the next century, tight composition, fun, and ridiculous. Love it!

BSWC Artist Playlist and Audio File for 07.15.06

Update: Here is the audio file for this edition.

Jamendo is amazing! I started working my way through my hard drives to put this show together and after a couple of hours I found that the resulting one and a half hours of music were all from Jamendo with only two exceptions. Jamendo is so deep and comprehensive...they cover any mood and there are several moods that are covered in this show. They have really come a long way since Subsystem7 sent me the link about a year ago. I hope you enjoy the show.

BSWC Artist Playlist and Audio File for 07.08.06

Check it out. Here is the audio file . A bunch of stuff from CCHits in this show. I simply love the title of the first song.

Another interesting aspect of tonight's program is the appearance by two ccmixters with remix versions of the song, Ophelia by Musetta. We have been playing the original Ophelia on this show since we started doing this last fall, but last friday Musetta posted the song to ccMixter and they have been off to the races.

CC Attention in the Print Media (BSWC gets a mention)

WBCR Member and Programmer, Paul Rapp also has a weekly column in Albany's alternative weekly, Metroland and has put together a 2 part series on music from the internet.  The second part appears in this week's edition and has some nice words about Creative Commons licenses and BSWC.  Good on ya', Paul.
There is a growing body of great music available through Creative Commons licenses, where the artist specifically releases the music on the Web for people to download for free. Why would they do that, you ask? So you will listen to it, dummy! These artists have come to the conclusion that they’d rather have folks actually listen to their music than pitch it to a big label on the slight chance that a label would release it and the even slighter chance that the label would properly promote and distribute it, and the miniscule chance that some radio station might actually play it. Post it, baby, and it’s gone.
