Furchick's track from Blurred and Obscured on WFMU, "Get A Haircut," was named #24, and "Untitled 1" by Kyle Eyre Clyd, performed on Strength Through Failure with Fabio, was named #15. The sessions aired on WFMU but are also in our collection of WFMU Live Performances here on the Free Music Archive. You can stream or download the tracks (or the full sets) here on FMA.
While we're shamelessly bragging, we'll also mention that some other artists on the list have been featured on FMA, as well: How I Quit Crack, Wolf Eyes, Gagu, Lightning Bolt, Ashtray Navigations, Limbs Bin, and Jah Excretion. Thanks to Raymond Cummings for including some FMA tracks in the mix!

Rather than "Top [insert number] Best Albums of 2015" we've decided to take a different angle. Rather than ranking tracks or adding unnecessary 'clout' to specific albums, artists, or songs, we're sharing these in no particular order. You can decide which ones you like best!
This is the fourth of an ongoing series.
Now, a bit about this mix, and who made it:
This collection is a few highlights from the FMA's massive collection of WFMU Live Recordings (recently reshuffled into collections by DJ, which you can browse here). There are, of course, many more sessions to choose from (including a multitude of live performances from Monty Hall, WFMU's performance space). The DJs at WFMU bring artists into the studio frequently, and many of them allow us to share their original songs on the Free Music Archive.
The selections here were not easy to choose -- especially when we had to only list fifteen of them -- but we've selected a few of our favorites from the past 365 days for you! Thanks to all of the DJs who brought in amazing artists all year long, and to the artists who were willing to share their music with us here at FMA.
So - here it is - our WFMU highlights selection from 2015! Listen or download in our handy sidebar player to the right, or see the playlist page for more.

One of our most prolific curators, WFMU, has more than 17,000 mp3s in their portal, and more than 80 DJs and radio programs represented as contributors to the FMA! As a way to help organize their collection, we organized every live WFMU set by DJ/program. You can now browse through live sets dating back more than 25 years, including sets from The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T, Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg, The Antique Phonograph Program with MAC, Irwin Chusid's show, Brian Turner's show, and much much more!

In this episode, Cheyenne Hohman, current Director of the FMA, spoke with Ken Freedman about WFMU, a well-known noncommercial & freeform radio station in Jersey City, NJ. WFMU created the Free Music Archive, and Ken talks about its origins, copyright laws of yore, and more.

WFMU and the Free Music Archive are proud to present a new season of Radio Free Culture, a weekly podcast exploring issues at the intersection of digital culture and the arts. Our season opener is a two-part interview with FMA pal Elliot Harmon, Communications Manager at Creative Commons. We couldn't have imagined a better way to bring back Radio Free Culture than to take a look at the current state of affairs at our favorite alternative licensing operation.
