Best of 2012: dvd's Picks

a tough nut to crack

Hey! I'm David - former FMA librarian, admin, and thing-doer. I spent a lot of time this year hunting the virtual stack for lost gems and Creative Commons treasures, and I come to you now with my Top 10 Albums to hit the Free Music Archive in 2012. They're presented below in alphabetical order... enjoy the tunes, and here's to another couple years of free sonic goodness at the FMA!

 

Hisko Detria

Static Raw Power Kraut

As a sucker for all things Krautrock, this Creative-Commons licensed demo from Finnish psych-rockers Hisko Detria hit all the right buttons for me. Long cuts of interstellar guitar/keyboard explorations, delay-laden vocal outbursts, and a steady rhythm section from a group that doesn't shy away from its influences. Looking forward to hearing them build on this sound in 2013!


 

Howie Mitchell & Ruth Meyer

11-14-'58

If you haven't been keeping up with The Howie Tapes pseudo-label here at the FMA, then you're missing out on some of the, er... freshest archival recordings on the net. David Mitchell, son of famed Hammered Dulcimer player Howie Mitchell, has been methodically digitizing and releasing his father's recordings - so far dating all the way back to this unreleased 1958 tape. They're all excellent!

Salute to the Sun

This past week the FMA participated in a radio broadcast installation based out of the Soundfjord soundart gallery in London. The Radeq Summer of '12 radio experiment started at sunrise (6.06am) in London on Monday the 27th of August and did not stop broadcasting live from sun-lit land until 120 hours later. As the sun set in London the broadcast switched to a geniusly placed microphone in None Gallery, Dunedin, New Zealand to capture the sun rise and the day's soundscape. Then, as the sun set in NZ the stream switched back to London's sunrise... This continued until London's sunset on Friday 31st at 19.48.

For our part, we put together a diverse one-hour mix of sun-themed Creative Commons tunes from the FMA. We tried to cover a lot of musical ground, so you'll hear soundart, field-recordings, ambient electronic, chiptune, folk, pop, punk, funk, psych-rock, free-jazz & more. We also threw in some dialogue from the Public Domain film "Our Mr. Sun" which is worth checking out over at the Prelinger Archives. With September now upon us, I guess it's our little way of saying goodbye to a fun and productive Summer here in Jersey City. 

Check out the tracklist and download individual songs at the MIX PAGE. You can find more info about the Radeq broadcast here.

Hey dvd, check your email. Alan Driscoll (aka http://freemusicarchive.org/music/The_Womb/) and I have been trying to get him added as a curator to add his extensive catalog of indie-pop.
