Wud Records: September 2017 musical discoveries

Posted by Wudmaster on 03/10/17

A brand new playlist of all the favourite musical discoveries of the Wud Records team has been published at SoundCloud. All of the artists on it are amazing independent unsigned artists who are making great music that needs to be heard and are not associated with Wud Records. We simply accumulated songs that we all liked during September into one agreed playlist and published it at the end of the month.

Tracks have been arranged according to the number of plays at the time of publishing, starting with the fewest. Tracks that are early in playlists tend to receive more plays than later tracks, and we feel that the ones with fewer plays need the best chance of exposure.

There is a vast amount of great music on SoundCloud if you have the time and inclination to filter through it. If you happen to be looking out for some great new music, we’ve already done that filtering for you! September’s Discoveries playlist has a total of 50 tracks and is the joint largest of our Discoveries playlists so far.

Can you complete the challenge of listening to every track? If you manage it, tell us, tell some of the music makers involved, and tell the world on social media how you feel about what you heard. Everyone concerned would love to hear your thoughts.

If you are one of the bands from which we recently liked, shared or tweeted a track at SoundCloud, there is a chance that one of your tracks might be on this new playlist!

Are you a member of SoundCloud? We always follow back if you have your own tracks and we always listen eventually, even if it takes a few weeks. So if you would like the opportunity of a bit of free publicity you could follow Wud Records on SoundCloud. It’s even free to join with a basic membership!

We hope that a lot more people will find and listen to the wonderful songs on this new playlist of musical discoveries. Each and every track has something that we felt was special or interesting in some way. Because we enjoyed them so much, we feel that it would be great if the artists in question could have a bit more exposure for their fabulous works. So please listen, enjoy, share and check out some of these wonderful bands. In many cases it was a tough job to choose just one track from an artiste.

The playlist is very eclectic, so there is probably something on there to suit every taste. If the track you are listening to isn’t quite doing it for you, skip to the next one and perhaps that will please your ears more. Sometimes similar tracks end up next to each other, and sometimes extremely different tracks do, so we recommend you just try it for yourself.

If you find some new favourites on there, why not shout about them on social media? We are sure the artistes responsible for creating the music will welcome such word-of-mouth exposure and your friends and followers would probably love to enjoy hearing it too. At the very least you might end up making an indie musician’s day.

Wud Records: September 2017 top ten tracks published at SoundCloud

Posted by Wudmaster on 02/10/17

The top ten tracks for September 2017 from Wud Records have been published in a new playlist at SoundCloud. Tracks have been arranged from one to ten according to their popularity and take into account plays, comments, likes and reposts. Our algorithm gives 1 point for a play, 5 points for a comment, 10 points for a like and 12 points for a repost.

Tracks published at Bandcamp have been omitted from the SoundCloud playlist. This is because we feel the Bandcamp results require separate treatment. Archive tracks are also ignored.

Only you, the listener, can influence our October 2017 playlist. So if there is a track you particularly like, keep playing it!

Massive thanks go out to everybody who helped to support all of us during September 2017 by listening, commenting and reposting our bands’ tracks. September 2017‘s figures were quite good, although we have been too busy sorting out our relocation to push the promotion of tracks very much. Output of content has temporarily dwindled, which is frustrating for everyone. You can see this by looking at the headlines of recent news posts.

Right now we are in the middle of moving the entire operation to the European mainland, which will enable activities to return to normal after a period of resettlement. All fans and followers will be kept updated via the News service and on Twitter. At the moment we are swamped by a sea of boxes and organised chaos and hope things will hurry up and come to pass. It won’t be so very long now so please bear with us a little longer.

A special mention needs to go out to Atom Collector Records. Their service continues to help us achieve consistently and significantly better activity. If you have tracks on SoundCloud, Bandcamp, YouTube, Spotify, ReverbNation or HearThis, you too could see considerable growth in activity. It’s free to join. Just click here to go to their site.

Congratulations to The Ug Brothers, whose gloriously cross-genre track What Is It? from their 1995 Cute But Weird album has topped our chart for the very first time. You can download the track as pay-what-you-want, including for free, from Bandcamp by clicking here. The Ug Brothers showed a reasonable amount of dominance in September with further tracks coming in at positions three and seven.

Also appearing on this month’s chart are Dark Company, & co and Mark Drower and the Everyones. No other acts appeared on this extremely varied chart.

If you prefer to listen here at Wud Records, you will find that it is the new default music player. You will find it on all non band-specific pages at the site, such as our News service or homepage.

Flicker: web pages updated at Wud Records

Posted by Wudmaster on 12/09/17

All of the Flicker pages here at Wud Records have received a long-awaited update to reflect current events and recent history. Most of the Flicker pages have also had additional information added to them. Why not have a look for yourself? You can reach all of Flicker’s pages here at the Wud Records website by clicking here.

During the present transition between the UK and Europe, we find ourselves with occasional time to spare. We will aim to use this spare time constructively by updating more pages at the website so that the fans of our bands can see what has happened recently and find out more of the stories behind the music. There have been a few odd snatches of news concerning several of our bands over the past few months and we shall publish everything in due course.

There will be more Flicker news in the coming weeks once the new Wud Records studio has been fully constructed and tested. These are exciting times and we believe that some of the potential that our active bands have shown will start developing fully in the coming months. We shall continue to keep everyone informed of subsequent developments in our News service and on Twitter.

We are very pleased to say that this is the first news post for some months that is not simply to announce the publication of a new playlist at SoundCloud! Things are moving on at a pace by now and the future looks bright. Hooray!
