Episode 113: Unsigned and Wound Up 7

posted May 1, 2012, 2:27 am by Brian Rutherford | Filed Under Music Emissions presents Unsigned and Wound Up, Podcast | comment 26 Comments


Friends, foes and readers alike, volume seven? It was a quick year in 2011, and we still haven’t compiled the best of last year, perhaps a soon-to-be podcast.

Unsigned and Wound Up of 2011
Volume 1: Volume 2: Volume 3: Volume 4: Volume 5: Volume 6:

Alright, from January 15th through April 15th, we received 1200-plus submissions. An estimated 30-percent were from international acts. While I wouldn’t say this was the best crop of artists we’ve ever received, it ranks up there in some of the best.

The bad news:

Six hundred submissions were not selected, either poor quality, poor composure or just the worst band name (Oso Negro??) ever conjured? We’re only slightly kidding… Sorry, maybe next time all who submitted…

and keep music new…

The good news:

Six hundred remaining came down to 150 (or so), which was tightly reduced to 80. So from here, we ended up publishing the rest in way shape or form. So…let’s get to it.

Listen to the podcast…

    Wow, that’s a hell of a lot of work. Props to you Brian :) Took me almost a day to listen to the choices and those on the verge. Loon Choir was my favourite but there is some damn fine stuff in here.

    Excellent work on all of this! Very well put together, classy and professional presentation and a very nice mix of artists featured. While each track has a lot to offer (even those that fall outside of my typical listening habits), it was the post-rock feel of Drop Electric that grabbed me the tightest. This is a band that I am very eager to explore further.

    Thanks guys, your feedback is a golden reward. I’m glad you enjoyed it. Truly tried to keep it diverse and as fresh as possible. Hopefully everyone finds a new unknown favorite.

    I liked Rhyme Progression and Maulskull, Robinson Treacher was ok, so were Loon Choir and Synergy. In like lions cool and Wait for green were also cool, but my vote goes to BeatCircuit.
