BSWC Once-in-a-While: Ocbalt - Okno

New music from the netlabel Monotonik. This release is from the Finnish artist, Ocbalt. Great tune from the little vocal loop straight through.

Yep, haven't been here in a while, but stuff happens, right?

BSWC One-a-Day: Paolo Messere/Kiddycar - You Save Me From Understanding More

Found an excellent Halloween release. Actually this release is way more than that, lots of excellent sounds ranging a large number of genres -- with a somewhat spooky theme.

The release is a v/a compilation from Silber Records :

"The truth is, we don’t think of Silber as a record label as much as we do a family of artists from around the world, sharing mutual respect for each other. The artists we showcase are stylistically & technically different from one another, & because of this, our audience is wonderfully varied. However, there are common threads that hold us all together, whether they be in the form of walls-of-sound or acoustic guitars."
Enjoy this track, but make sure to listen to the full release, it is well worth the 168mb download for the 192vbr... more than 2 hours of music.

BSWC One-a-Day: Miss Testosterone - Karaoke Tundar & Luke Warm

Released in March this year (SM014) on the netlabel Surreal Madrid, Miss Testosterone totally does the trick for me. Xylophone transformation, electronic beats, everything stays chill while no matter how fast the peice moves -- perfect with a beer in the morning ;)

Karaoke Tundra, most recently appearing in the Sperm Festival, in Prague, hails from Slovakia. Luke Warm appears to be an artist from the U.K. -- although her/his myspace page does not reveal much.

enjoy this delectable release...

BSWC One-a-Day: Winter Took His Life - Please Don't

Here is a tune recorded by Oskar Erlandsson and Susanna Brandin in 2005 that was released on archive.org just today. Thank you.

Really amazing singer/songwriter kind of stuff. A beautiful song, done well. Oskar Erlandsson and Susanna Brandin recorded the tune in Lund, Sweden. The rest of the release features different folks at different times, but it is well worth the listen.

The release is called Björn Kleinhenz/Winter Took His Life - Blood bone / Home alone 2 on the netlabel, It's a Trap.

BSWC One-a-Day: Nurthre - Quoi Quoi Quoi

Plunderphonic fun coming at us for today's post from Nuthre, a very prolific Canadian Musician. The release, popstars, put out on the label Pop Quiz, is high energy pop / rap / dance / hip hop from start to finish.

For the uninitiated, plunderphonic is a label applied to an audio composition made of components taken unselfconsciously and directly from existing pieces of music and altering to form a brand new composition. Mixing and splicing copyrighted materials without permission is the norm. This type of sampling is sometimes delicious, and usually a comment on the original work or on copyright in general. You may have heard Biotic refer to Chenard Walker as a "plunderphonic wunderkind" in his September 24th One-a-Day post.

I hope you enjoy this track, and check out more of Nuthre's work, which does not follow this genre in general.

You may have noticed we're behind by a few days on One-a-Day posting... fear not! This is due purely to a recent time crunch.

BSWC One-a-Day: Feliz - Cumbia Feliz

Played this on the show this week. Great tune.

Not sure where Feliz is from, but he releases on Infinite Sector.

Three-day weekend here in the U.S. Gotta love a bank holiday. (Listening to geese headed south as I type).

BSWC One-a-Day: Digi Hartatak Featuring J-Me - Queen Of The Cemetery

Well, it is October. Never too early to get started with BSWHalloween. Let's get going.

This is from the netlabel, Noise Collector and Digi Hartatak. Digi Hartatak has been featured in these pages earlier with Nay, Nay and the tune, Balls.

These sounds are emanating from Florida, if I'm not mistaken.

It is getting spooky around here.

BSWC One-a-Day: A Tiny Window - Funky Toning Jam

From a collection of recordings from something called the Treewalk 2006 at a place called the Motueka area (South Island, Aotearoa/New Zealand).

""Funky Toning Jam" was another bit of hilarious spontaneity from the Friday night campfire at Riverside. It sounds like Damara was responsible. The saz is initially used percussively. Everyone (despite being seated) was fully in motion during this one. "

I would love to get a chance to take part in a future Treewalk. Based on these recordings it is my sort of outing.

BSWC One-a-Day: Bird Lantern - Sweet Papa Fridge

I'll be the first to admit that with a daily deadline sometimes I put something up after hearing a few bars and figure it will work. O.K., so I'm not so proud, but it works and keeps the concept intact. But, the CC Netlabel world is so rich that frequently I can dip in and easily find something that totally rocks my world.

Introducing, from Aidelaide, Australia, via the netlabel, monotonik (the sound is something of a departure for them)Bird Lantern. This release, DuD [mtk191], is a must. You will need to go and download the entire release.

For today's selection I picked the down and funky, Sweet Papa Fridge. Man, I wish these guys were playing down the street right now. Try "Thrill". Wow.

BSWC One-d-Day: 1000000 a.d. - Fade Into You

I don't remember ever posting a cover before, but this is an excellent general representation of the entire release, which I enjoyed straight through. It is a cover of Mazzy Star's big hit, Fade Into You. Moody, slow, melancholic, and lo-fi -- perfect. That description really works for the entire release, Come On Lincoln, released through the netlabel Cornslaw Industries. Cornslaw is based in Toledo Ohio and lives and dies by its motto "puttin' stuff on the web that wasn't there before."

1000000 a.d. has a myspace page and a site on Cornslaw, neither of which are very informative ;)

I hope you enjoy this selection.
