solipsistic NATION No. 285: Song of the Day

Song of the DayThere’s an old saying that 99% of everything is crap. Theater, movies, literature, etc. And in our case, electronic music. 99% of it is crap. Mediocre. Uninspired. Trite. Cliche. Gutless. Excrement.

But here’s the good part—there are so many human beings that statistically there’s an astounding amount of great electronic music in the 1%! So much so, in fact, that I can’t possibly play all of it even on a weekly one hour program. There’s just too much of it! Seemed a shame to keep it to myself so I started Tweeting whatever tracks I was listening to at the moment that I thought were worth hearing.

Problem solved, right?

Not quite.

I listen to a lot of music when I’m on the go and it was frustrating to not always be able to link to the song or album I was listening to.

What to do?

After giving it some thought I created a new section on my blog where I featured the song of the day. That gave me the freedom to not only link to the artist but also include the song or a video of the song of the day, and whenever it’s possible, a free MP3 download of that song.

I’ve posting a song a day for the last month or so and now that I have enough of them under my belt I thought it was time to share some of those songs with you on today’s show. And like the tracks I feature on my blog, the music on today’s show will skip from genre to genre and every track is top notch.

On today’s I prove it to you.

Below are links to purchase music from on today’s show. If you like anything you heard, why not spend a buck or two to support the artists?

See you next week!
