Headphone Electronica

What is 'electronica'? It's a term used to describe "electronic music styles intended not just for dancing but also concentrated listening". Headphone electronica is created by indie musicians working with twenty first century tools to create, edit and sometimes perform their work. It's a new 'Folk Art' crafted by artists making professional quality music for the digital age. Musicians getting little support or interference from mainstream record labels. Idyllic Music Podcast features songs by these artists and I think you will agree the talent is astounding.
