“Oh Mallory” (by Josh Woodward)
Can you believe that it’s been 5 months since we last released a netBloc compilation?? Way too long! Though, sometimes you do what you can with the time available. Well, I’ve finally got the latest volume ready for you. One that doesn’t break from the tradition of quality. In total, eleven superb tracks from the world over. Eleven tracks that I hope will become some of your favorites. Among them is a taste of our next Xtended Edition release by The Scallions. A terrific group based in Connecticut who deliver their own signature sound that they like to call “Avant-Garde Power Pop”. Influenced by The Residents and The Beach Boys, The Scallions know how to make infectious music that’s likely to grab you and not let go. So, when you get a chance, head on over to their Facebook page and welcome them to the blocSonic fam. I’m sure they’d love to hear from you!
So, I bet you’re wondering about the title… right? Well, “antididonai” is a greek word meaning “given against”. Antidote is derived from the word. For me, netaudio is not so much an antidote to mainstream junk, since that would mean netaudio contains a bit of the junk within it. IMO, antididonai fits much better.
Closing in on 40 volumes of this compilation series and I still have such a great time compiling netaudio favorites into the perfect selection, packaging it and getting it out to all of you!
Be sure to take a look at this volume’s liner notes PDF, so that you can provide some feedback on a possible future addition to the netBloc series.
A very special thanks to all of you who continually return to this humble series as a way to keep up with the latest happenings in the Creative Commons/netaudio world. Thanks to all of you who are new to the series. Once you’ve fully absorbed this volume, please check out the other 38 volumes for more tasty, eclectic morsels!
Thanks again for listening! Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!
