Episode 131

April 18, 2014

Your excursion begins with some new music–three pieces that came together in a shuffle, to be honest, and I liked the way they sounded. From there, we head deep into the Hypnagogue library to keep the flow going. Enjoy.

Having recently reviewed the very good album Sleeping With the Window Open by Another Neglected Hobby, I decided it would make a great stepping-off point for this latest excursion into the review queue. From there it just made sense to keep things quiet for a bit. This ride goes through some dark spaces, finds slivers of post- and prog-rock, and finishes in an easy acoustic space. Enjoy.

Now and then the way one song transitions into another sets things in motion. Such was the case here. After that it’s just a matter of following inspiration, memory, and preference, just to see where it all takes you. A 30-minute set followed by an hour-long set.

*In the podcast, I refer to this as being a track from Aaron Martin and Christoph Berg, which is how it appears in iTunes, and how it’s conveyed, more or less, on the CD cover. At the time I was recording the first set, I wasn’t aware that Day Has Ended was not a collaboration, but a split release between Aaron and Christoph. This track is Aaron’s; it opens the disc.
