So Fertile

So Fertile Portland's worst radio show, lubed with a love for the trashy, the q***r and the mundane. We also curate a rotating weekly lite listening playlist "summer but I don't like heat," covering obscure, upcoming or quintessential songs we love.

Operating as usual

Sky Girl – compiled by DJ Sundae and Julien Dechery on @efficient_space
∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞
I first listened to this compilation while taking a rainy early-afternoon hike on my birthday a few years back. For a compilation, it spans the output of musicians whose work feels hyper-specific, uncomfortably intimate, including Nini Raviolette, Rising Storm & Karen Marks.
∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞
I’ve listened to “Sarra” by Gary Davenport over and over again. I’ve tried to make sense of its origin story, my own connection to it and threadbare musical output of its writer for a couple years now. The song was almost completely unheard for decades out of the trauma its songwriter. In my own consumption of it, I’ve attached it to places and people I’d rather not linger on. A cursed song. A healing.

2 new gassy songs, So So + Deceived

Love letters to mental illness. A response to the tendency in entertainment media to misrepresent and romanticize psychological disorders, if you will. Bright & bubbly. Sometimes the only thing scarier than how you see yourself is how others choose to interpret your immutable traits.

I’m planning on experimenting more with nastier textures & sounds so I wanted to release something a bit featherweight.

“It’s my me time. You know that. Never have time to myself. Someone has to clean the house, think Gerry would? Bah! And you wouldn’t believe the kind of music they play at Hannaford. You heard it? Just don’t have time to think. I’m an early riser. I like when they play Connie Francis.”

summer but I don't like heat, a playlist by Sam Burnell on Spotify

Excited to announce a new weekly roundup of upcoming / obscure / quintessential Dream Pop, Post-Punk, & generally moody music on Spotify.

In the process of submitting my own music to blogs & playlists, I got frustrated that many curators are afraid to feature music outside their comfort zone and, by doing so, tend to feature very typical & myopic music. My own ego, tastes, & feeeeelings aside, I wanted to create a space for musicians who are doing compelling things.

So Fertile has always represented a place for unappreciated & overlooked music / themes / emotions, so we hope this can help us expand our scope and grow as curators. While Loretta’s holding down fort with our WMPG FM show, I’ll (Psetta) be compiling a weekly list of 30 songs from personal listening, suggestions, & submissions in the form of “summer but I don’t like heat”

If want us to feature a song of yours or just have a great suggestion, feel free to give us a like and slither into the DMs. We’ll include as much as we can a>p>s, Spills, Helenor, Mauno, Katie Dey, Camomile Dawn, Pursohn, Les Manteez, Automatic, & Ambientcloud

Never stop making music.
