Anonymous ...ok - LOVE these S-E-L-E-C-T-I-O-N-S!!!!! hahaha -M-
Anonymous I've noticed that quite a few of the s-e-l-e-c-t-i-o-n-s are a bit of a "Trip Back in Time"... that being said, "Flaming Flesh" dates from around 1994 ...Thanks again! -M-
The Curator Anon, I knew what you were trying to say :) I'm just glad to bring more thought provoking songs to the show - everyone will view from their own perspective but a little patience will bring rewards and open hearts and minds
FT Thanks for adding Soul Pinata, much appreciated!
Duane Thanks for your insight and thanks for the add! I'm in good artistic company!
LyinDan Thanks! I spent many seconds developing that one.
Two Silo Complex Thank you for adding my song "hold on" you rock
The curator I'm sorry but time and other commitments prevent me from adding to this station in the immediate future but I've enjoyed being part of the station scene for a short while and I think IMP plays an important part in Indie music promotion

Looking beyond the paradigm
I love art in all its forms but it goes deeper than liking what I see or hear. I believe one has to get into the mind of the artist to understand their inspiration and thought processes.
A cold blooded observer is quick to judge and has no patience or interest to study the 'art' in the presentation or production. A warm blooded art lover takes the time to delve, look beyond, ruminate, empathize, ingest and grow to love a piece art/music.
As an example take Vincent Van Gogh - he worked and lived under extreme mental pressure - expressing his self visually became an obsession. No-one thought much of his work, he only sold a handful of paintings in his lifetime - Since his death, the art world has 'caught up' with his way of painting from the soul, putting his inner observations on show, now, we still may not like his simplistic works but knowing his personal story makes his art more intriguing - we look deeper, we see through his eyes. There are songs, or expressions of art and culture at Indie Music People that tend to get overlooked because they make hard listening and don't go down the normal musical channels of communicating with listeners. The art is maybe ahead of its time or just has a limited commercial appeal.
Put this station's player on any website!

I just can't say enough about the quality of this song, how on Earth could it be languishing in obscurity at IMP without a single add. On first listen you think it's just a pleasant slow rock ballad, well executed etc - but there is SO much more. A piece of songwriting genius with classy changes, subtle harmony and such a beautifully toned vocal. He asks, he pleads "where do we go now" and I tell him he's going into my heart and on to my Station. His name is Art, and I can see why. What a find! added to station 5/29/2016 3:14:11 AM

Psyche's Muse
FLAMING FLESH
It opens with interestingly menacing guitar peeling then the vocal steps into the picture laying his cryptic lyrics down into a deep, dark puddle of blood (my image) The adventurous melody creeps around, crying out a story of something that has to be told over again - even then we may never arrive at the same conclusions as the writer in his doleful lament. added to station 5/28/2016 7:59:13 AM

The Garden Song
I was fascinated by the intensity and forcefulness of the vocal hook - a kind of verbal pile driver that hammers deep into your head each time you hear it, then masochistically, you crave more because it's grown like ivy around your brain cells and you can't pull it free. There's something in the backing that's quite addictive too. the music progresses instrumentally but the melody becomes a warm comforter you want to have close. Ironic that The Garden Song grows once you 'dig' it. A new kind of art, subtle and daringly blunt. added to station 5/29/2016 1:43:02 AM

USUK
Cream
Ethnic rave/dance track with intermittent vocal chants - like nothing I ever heard before. So interesting, the SFX enhance the song which is thick with melody and enticingly rhythmic. Hard to grasp the meaning but it has contrasting identities of style. A stand above male vox exclaiming "Cream" with a rapid explanation while the backing runs circles around him. If you think you're not a dance fan this could spark your interest. added to station 5/29/2016 3:48:47 AM

Father Time
Soul Piñata
The only station adding this masterpiece was "The Bitter Guy Station" (the artist's own) It's time to redress the balance because the song is bursting with art and angst, it has the noisy prodding of the lead guitar and then a soft place to rest and get your breath back. A touch of psychedelica, a glance towards Rock opera and the urgent chants and screams of the vocalist make this a collage of musical superlatives :) added to station 5/29/2016 4:18:00 AM

Sufjan Stevens
Casimir Pulaski Day
This was a popular track but I wonder if it was really understood previously. Some might think it doesn't make a good song when a guy sings about his dead girlfriend, especially when the narrative is sung to a happily strummed backing. I'm fascinated by the lighthearted way this subject has been handled but maybe that's how it should be - I'm kind of smiling and crying at the same time - the ending is impressive and joyous until that last 'flat line' note. added to station 5/29/2016 3:58:11 AM

Hold on
Took me a while but I found the song with the most art on TSC page. It's a Jackson Pollock of a song with all the tracks splashed onto the floor to roll around in. The colors are dark purples, browns and olive, the brush is broad and applied with strong strokes, maybe impasto. Submerged vocal is the glue to hold the canvas together. The song wades in it's heavy boots through musical sand then falls off a cliff suddenly at the end. added to station 5/29/2016 6:02:24 AM

Duane Flock
Life Support
The message is serious, the vocal is sincere and the instruments are well played but the tune and the little minor switches and "Ooh" moments are where I find some artistic thinking. It's a big musical picture that hangs well - you can look right into it and find those carefully crafted touches. Obviously listeners will appreciate this as a solid Alternative Rock song but does it remind them of anything else they've heard? No, it's unique but still very approachable. The artist made some intelligent strokes here. added to station 5/29/2016 8:18:08 AM

One Step Ahead
Quite unique and fascinating to observe what's happening here - a musical paella of tasty ambiance and cultural influences moving on different levels, pulling your mind this way and that. It's like sitting on a grassy knoll watching a time lapse scene of a cavalcade of sounds passing by added to station 5/28/2016 8:37:50 AM

The Owl of Minerva
An interesting fusion of progressive art rock loaded with instrumental asides - this is not a song you play for immediate musical gratification, this is a piece to hang up and examine with all your senses. Drama and musical talent make this a showpiece added to station 5/28/2016 7:42:23 AM

Green Hat
We don't really know what's happening here, starts off in a confusion of dramatic passages until it settles into an ethnic rhythm - but this is not the end because along the way it seeps out into mysterious adventures of style and form. I think it's got much merit and you should spend some time with it. added to station 5/28/2016 4:54:41 AM

The Lady of the Woods
Hearing this new song (in an old style) takes the listener back to the days of folk lore, chivalry and idylls of a simpler lifestyle before the introduction of music as we know it today. The pitch perfect lady vocalist draws you into the woods as her voice dances around like a warm breeze in dappled sunlight. added to station 5/28/2016 8:16:43 AM
