2015 was an enormous year for discovering talented artists from around the world and I expanded my music taste more than ever that’s for sure. This program is compiled of a select few artists who really caught my attention with their style and approach to music. The segment is rather short so I could only fit a small fraction of what is heavily on rotation in my mind. Starting off the show with Calgary’s trio The Knows featuring the track “E.T” from their New Enigmas EP full of rhythmic post-punk experimentation released independently on Bandcamp. Experimental fourtet Palm originating out of Philadelphia with the track “Crank” off their stunning debut full-length Trading Basics released on Inflated Records & Exploding in Sound. Groovy psych/experimental fourtet Hidden Rituals with the song “Judy” from their album Zebra Bottle released on Monofonus Press. Sydney, Australia’s fourtet Cull with the cut “The Quality Of Being Lifelike” from the album Aloft released independently on Bandcamp. Four-piece outfit Pauw hailing from the underground music scene in the Netherlands with the tune “Today Never Ends” from the incredible album Macrocosm Microcosm released independently on Caroline Benelux. Concluding the segment will be a musical project from São Paulo, Brazil’s artist BIKE with the psych nugget “Alucinacões E Viagens Astrais” off the album 1943 released on Honey Bomb Records.
