Sharing this beauty with you, this fine Sunday =]
Hi, my name’s Dave Greening, and you’re listening to The Mid-Week 10, mixed by Rotorro. This is the podcast where I present you with 10 different tracks I’ve found across soundcloud this week, and write about them in my blog linked below. As always, suggestions are appreciated… in fact, they’re important, since it helps me find tracks I wouldn’t otherwise come across! Anyway, let’s get right into it.
This week’s featured track is Broken by Orlando Sound, and it’s bloomin’ wonderful! You know I have a soft spot for acoustic tracks, but even if I didn’t, I’d still love this. The vocals are absolutely exquisite, and the piece is so dreamy. I really hope you enjoy it.
This one is a lovely simple piano piece, with a fantastic running bass motif, and adorable melody. DH Music has done well to express the beauty of this composition through its simplicity. Really enjoyable!
Damon Hill is one of my favourite groups on SoundCloud, and this is their latest upload. Their musicality is always spot on, and they write the nicest, most memorable tracks. My favourite bit comes in around 1:00, coupled with some sweet harmonies a little later on. These guys rock, love ‘em. Leave some comments!
Came across this wonderful track a few weeks ago, and really, really enjoyed it. With music from Rock Flexible, and ethereal vocals from Lamara Graham, this gothic rock track adds a bit of flavour to this week’s podcast. Enjoy the solo guitar sections!
Another beautiful track, this is Ed Haydon’s “Epic,” which grows throughout, becoming an absolutely splendid track by the end. The piano starts of subtly, the choir comes in ominously, and the layering afterwards is profound. 1:28 onwards is great!
Someone who I think deserves a bit of attention on the ‘cloud is Pumpkin King, and hopefully this ambient, electronic piece will inspire you to leave a few comments on the track. This is another grower, with nice parts added here and there.
Beanie Atoll is a fantastic artist, and this track should show you why. The mixing is great, the melody is outstanding, and the vocals are stunning. This is one of my favourite tracks from this week, a really enjoyable listen.
Just had to get The Janitor in here this week, listen to this beautiful collab with Ben Egginton! Another glorious musical track, with a great instrumental section around 1:10.
This is one that I just know you’ll love; some blissful ambience, which will really put you in a trance. I’ve put this one close to the end, because it’s a perfect night-time track. So, whenever you’re ready to get to bed, switch this one on.. stare at the ceiling for a little while, and then drift off!
And finishing off tonight’s podcast with this lovely number from Tiny Little Houses, Caleb, a 20 year old Australian. His vocals are like nothing I’ve ever heard before, and they’re really touching. This guy’s got the potential to make it big on the indie scene, let’s see what happens, and let’s start his journey here! Leave him some comments!
Thank you so much for listening this week, please leave comments on the tracks I’ve featured, and spread the love!
If you want to suggest some tracks, then leave comments on my podcast!
'Till next week! Dave
Another big collaboration, this time with Zefora! Really, really hope you enjoy this!
It’s time for some Twobob piano IDM! This is one of my favourite collabs, and we really hope you like it. :)
This week’s podcast, featuring 10 tracks from across SoundCloud, with featured artist Emily Denton!
Hi, everybody, I’m Dave Greening, and you’re listening to the mid-week 10, the podcast where I play you 10 tracks I’ve found on SoundCloud this week, and review them in my blog. Before we get started, I want to thank Rotorro for mixing this week’s podcast.
First, a couple of announcements, we have two charity projects on the go at the moment. Mr. Dodo has released an album titled Not Harmonious Enough, the proceeds of which are going directly to various charities. Next, Martin L has produced a charity track to raise money for families effected by the recent flooding in the Phillipines. He has teamed up with a couple of prolific soundclouders, so click take a listen right here!
Just before I get onto this week’s tracks, please make sure to leave some suggestions on the podcast, in regard to what music you would like to hear next week! Feel free to suggest your own, or a friends, or even someone you’ve only just found on soundcloud, and I will try my best to give them a mention!
Anyway, let’s get to this week’s tracks.
The first one I’m playing is this week’s featured track, by Emily Denton, titled “Patiently.” Emily’s vocals are absolutely beautiful, as is the message delivered by the track. I’m a great fan of simple guitar accompaniment, and this track features just that. Please leave her some comments, it’s gorgeous.
Somebody else who is great at writing acoustic tracks is the fantastic Paul Sale. This is his track “Magpie,” featuring some overwhelmingly beautiful vocals. The track has a fantastic Celtic vibe, with a lovely fiddle and piano line, alongside the guitar. One of my favourite finds from this week.
With just 38 plays this week, this is Leon Fix’s “She Doesn’t See Me.” This is one which I just had to share because of its musicality and the power of the chorus at 0:50. The whole piece is just so perfectly put together, it’s a wonder why it has so few plays. But, this is where this podcast comes in. Leave him some comments! :)
Moving away from acoustic for a little bit, this is “Trip Hop in Space” by Maxx Black and his friend James. I really love alernative sounds, and this is no exception. 1:47 onwards is where I really started getting into it, with its Western feel. Love this.
This pretty piece is “The Departure” by Laura Thiebaut which features some lovely vocals. This one put me in a really good mood after a hard day’s work. I hope it does the same for you.
Micah Swigert is one of my favourite ‘clouders, and this track should show you why. His musicality, professionalism, and presentation of his works is just astounding. The start of this piece is gripping, yet beautiful, and then it just explodes at 1:27. This is one of the best orchestral themes to have graced the face of SoundCloud this year. In fact, it might come joint first, with Oliver Sadie’s Of Valour.
This is another great one, a chilled ambient acoustic track from Melodious Punk, titled “Crispy Tuna.” The vibe I get from this is just ethereal, it really feels like you’re gettting transported somewhere.
I don’t nearly give enough playtime to rock tracks on here, so here we are, with “No One’s Fool” by fourthfloorband, which is a cracker! The vocals are spot on, and the guitar work is fantastic. Some rippin’ wails here, there, and everywhere!
This is “Shrinking Shady,” an unforgettable track with a original soundscape and amazing sampling throughout. It’s certainly alternative, I’ll give you that, and I really hope you like it! Leave some comments! And now I leave you with another rock gem, this time from “Sun Tower,” which was posted earlier in the week. It really feels as if they’ve pumped everything into this track. I’ve already played this so many times, haha.
Thank you so much for listening this week, please leave some comments on the tracks I’ve featured today, and leave some suggestions for me to listen to as well.
Enjoy your week, and thanks for listening.
