And so we are back. The ever famous, mysterious and quite often cool NBTMusicRadio Reviews, in which we take a highly personal deep dive into tracks created by artists featured within the eclectic murky waters of the NBT 24 hour stream.
True, we actually never really went away, lurking in the shadows on other platforms and blog hosts, but right here has always been our real home, and we, even as the difficult children we were, finally realized that.
Most of the words below are written by Martin NBT the creator/owner of the crazy spaceship of indie radio that is NBTMusicRadio Two, but from time to time other deviants pop up with their thoughts of wonder and delight.
All this music can be found here, newly playlisted alongside music of an independent nature from past and present, and created by many huge stars of the near future.
And oh yes, as always… Here Be Fragments
The Blue Hour – One More Mystery
We are falling fast, with the mindless focus of rumbling missiles, through thunderstorm clouds perhaps, into a world not quite known, a lost tribe’s lament perhaps. The perfect mix of crystal clear voice, a whirlpool of beguiling strings all engaged in a somber interplay with smoky disturbing electronics. As the entrance into the band’s latest collection ‘ Awake’ this sets the scene for an evening of temptations and enchantments.
SNMT – Melting Music
This Project’s music is described on Bandcamp as ‘’ Queer/Trans Noise. Psychedelic post-no wave/post-melt/post-modern classical memecore trashy shit’’ And People that really is just a start . We here at NBT have been fans for a long while now and would recommend https://snmt.bandcamp.com/album/deep-cuts-2006-2016 as a good starting point into the extreme eclecticism on offer. The track we are writing about here today, created from free Android apps, is a bitter sweet lullaby perchance played to a child just before a long night of uneasy dreams, the kind that mixes fascination and fear, or is this sweet thing a grandparent’s longing made into a warped pop tune? You decide.
Radioactive X Girlfriend – Species Number Five
Ok now this (from the upcoming release ‘’ Volver Arriba’’ ) is the ideal song to listen to while frantically gulping coffee down and reading about this insecure world of ours imploding slowly into chaos, as weak madmen, now somehow leaders, threaten each other with death and destruction. Orchestrated ingeniously by Andrew Joslyn (Mark Lanegan, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis) this is a quirky and mischievous soundtrack to the apocalypse, down there in that Disco in the Dark. It’s a mad glad head-rush mix of electronics and strings marching anarchic like across the troubled landscape of our imaginations. And Beautiful too.
