Suitable For Public Consumption: Exquisite Sampler No. 5


Exquisite Noise Records Sampler No. 5, Suitable For Public Consumption

We are pleased to announce our long-simmering latest compilation disc is now available for streaming and purchase! Title, appropriately enough we think, Suitable For Public Consumption, this batch features everything from a performer who’s batting 5-for-5 in making it onto our discs (Frank Medley), a pair of bands we literally signed and approved tracks for the night before this album went to press (Key Machine, Rota), to veteran acts who are thankfully returning with some new material after a considerable absence (Zach Lunsford, Zayed Hassan), a side project from Wedlock by the name of Hagiphonic, a brand new one from ultra prolific British group The Gold Needles, a live offering from Bill Kimes, and some vintage reissues as well as unreleased cuts from a few of our legacy artists.  As far as the genres are concerned, well, you know by now what to expect from us – everything from indie rock to EDM to country to hip-hop to jazz fusion is covered here.

We viewed this collection as a soundtrack of sorts, and visualized making it flow like a movie. Give it a listen and let us know if we succeeded. Here are the links for some of your favorite destinations:

    What the fuck. Over 100 Million Spotify streams? Your Youtube Videos have barely 60 Clicks. “Various Artists” yeah right motherfuckers, how dumb can you be?


    Hi people! I’m a brazilian composer, singer and musician. I record my songs in my home studio. Songs in portuguese and in english. I’m always doing something new.

    Music without prejudice. Honesty for me and for the listener.

    Attention with the lyrics, grammar and message.

    Music from the heart and from the soul !

    I’d really appreciate if you listen some of my songs.

    • Not bad! We listened to a couple of tracks and have subscribed to your channel. It will be interesting to follow your progress! The visuals are also well done on some of these videos.
