Episode 164

July 29, 2015

Gotta love it when a good flow comes together. Or two good flows, for that matter. These two sets, so rudely interrupted by the talky guy in the middle, both find their own distinct groove. At the end, we close with a track from a legend who recently left us.

As you’ll hear, sometimes the music tells you exactly where to take a break on these shows. The first set is short, but it’s good and deep, and the long second set is even more so.

Episode 161

June 17, 2015

Seems I must have been in a fairly quiet mood as I brought this episode together. Long drifting passages in here, with just enough (slightly/comparatively) uptempo moments to keep you from dozing off completely. (I’ll nudge you halfway through with some talky bits, then let you get back to listening.)

Episode 159

May 20, 2015

This ep starts with a short set of music from the review queue. It’s not that there wasn’t much music, it’s that the first flow ends right where it needs to. From there I’ll feed you a bit of proggy fury, dip you into the depths, and bring you back around quite nicely, I’d say. Enjoy.

Episode 158

May 6, 2015

We continue with our blend of new and old, with the old coming first this time out. I pulled out a couple of names I hadn’t heard in a while, got back to a compilation I think you should know about, and then swished around in the barrel of new releases to pull out some of the tastiest cuts.

Am I the only ambient podcast host who talks like this? No, no—don’t answer that. Just listen to the show.
