Collecting Collectables from Curating Collectives

If you're beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed by the 9500 tracks now housed in the FMA, have no fear.  Curators have been compiling collections and mixes of some of their offerings to help you along.

Excavated Shellac hosts 91 digital captures of rare 78rpm records from the first quarter of the 20th century and has compiled an outstanding mix of some gems from the collection called International Association of the String, "A collection of early masterful fiddle and violin performances - including a few variations on the instrument, such as the kemence of the Black Sea, and the hardanger of Norway."  Listen below to a beautiful guitar duet from pre-tango era Argentina.

The Faux Fetus Collective's featured collection, "John Dwyer for Hire," includes a series of exclusive FFC releases from the current frontman of Thee Oh Sees.

dublab is currently featuring a collection of over 14 live performances from their sessions including the likes of Smegma, Peter Walker with Jack Rose, and Bradford Cox.

CASH Music (Coalition of Artists and Stakeholders) has a collection featuring only full albums and EPs, and a killer mix of music from the likes of Xiu Xiu, Superhumanoids, and Learning Music.

And if all else fails, find that fellow FMA-er whose got your taste in music, dig their mixes, and browse through their favorite artists, albums, and tracks!
