wfmu for odd music etc

Obscure music,found sound etc at Americas WFMU radio station. for the mp3's, for the blog which features the above and more.

krakli have been around for a bit

krakli has free synths. The only one I've tried is the minivurt box . I thought it was strange but pretty good.

looks to be quite a good interactive type radio station thing from the music genome project.It appears to adapt to your listening choices and suggestions.
you have to give them your email and it takes a day or so for them to get back to you.
Quality sounds good, and tracks played seem relevant to prompting track. I've not tried tweaking it yet.
Remains to be seen if I get spammed or anything

It's a mellotron........only better

theres only one in the world and you can buy it for 2500 dollars
(I don't know if it's really better than a mellotron.They say it is in some regards .... 40 min tape loops on 8 track carts....)

pop vids

Some good pop vids, including the donnas and the datsuns at tbm .
vids open in a smallish window ... well they do when I click on them

real reverb

for people who don"t mind waiting for their reverb, go here. (via musicthing again)
It's basically a giant tank somewhere in Germany with a speaker and mic in it.
You send them a file (pref short) and they play it into the tank,record the result and send you an mp3 back for free.

fascinates me this kind of thing

I'm sure its real, as on quiet bits I can hear birds fluttering and stuff
