New WM Recordings release available now through eMusic:
The fourth full-length Rubber Band Banjo album emphasizes the use of unfamiliar sounds played on homemade instruments and electrified objects. The rhythmic sound sources include 3-stringed and rubber band zithers with percussion on both electronic drums and objects amplified with contact mics. As a result the album is largely percussive driven, but has ambient and dynamic qualities from the natural recordings, software synthesizers, voice, and shortwave radio. These recordings are inspired by avant rock, krautrock, and whatever comes out of experimenting with electrified objects and instruments largely made from junked parts.
Be sure to check out our other eMusic releases as well:
blocSonic is proud to bring you another compilation featuring ten exceptional tracks from the world netlabel music. netBloc Volume 2 features rock, calypso, trip-hop, hip-hop, reggae and electronic.

The fourth full-lenght album by Rubber Band Banjo is now complete and will soon be released on WM Recordings! This album emphasizes the use of unfamiliar sounds played on homemade instruments and electrified objects…and is inspired by avant rock, krautrock, and whatever comes out of experimenting with electrified objects and instruments largely made from junked parts. You will soon find links in our shop to iTunes, eMusic, and other digital stores to download this album.
WM Recordings goes…. mobile!
Nope, it’s not a joke: besides releasing free and legal music (over 50 albums so far) and selling music through iTunes, eMusic and other digital music stores (check out our releases by Cobson and Elfferich Four!) WM Recordings now also dives into “mobile content”.
Do you make music that could be used and sold as ringtones? Do you know anyone who does? Let them get in touch and maybe you will soon find your own tracks available on a new website that will launch internationally this friday.
WM Recordings was invited to deliver high quality content to said site and decided it was worth a try. More info about the launch of this site will be available soon.
Mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.

From Black Sweater, White Cat:
WM Recordings always has something tasty. Release WM054, Big bright lights, from Doron Deutsch (hometown Haifa, Israel) is excellent!

Roy “Chicky” Arad has informed us that Chenard Walcker, a friend of the online music world, is slowly recovering from a diabetic coma. His brother reports that he is not physically suffering. He fell into the coma in September, and is now working on speech development and object differentiation.
Chenard is the prolific visual and musical collage artist who operates the Free Sample Zone with 58 releases available for download, including one for Oddio Overplay. Chenard also has two releases available on our label and he has contributed to various compilations.
So many of us have benefited from and enjoy Chenard’s work. This is our chance to repay our sweet friend and to send him our love with a tribute release on WM Recordings. More details will be available soon.
Please join us in preparing this gift for Chenard. Thank you.
“Great vocals, excellent drums, and tight and playful bass guitar – these guys are talented musicians with a good producer (Davide Cristiani). “Cry” just keeps moving, high energy joy, the kind of song you can’t help moving your head to.”
