Episode 172

November 19, 2015

Compilation albums. I don’t review them, but I receive them. And I like them. As much as I enjoy settling in with a big, album-length dose of one artist, I also like the tasty variety pack that is the compilation. Great way to discover artists who’ve never sent work to me for review. This episode pulls entirely from compilation albums to create one delicious musical entree.

Episode 171

November 5, 2015

One of my favorite song titles of all time is Lopside’s closing track from 37, “Titling Instrumental Tracks Seems Ridiculous.” Sometimes I feel that way about writing yet another intro to a fine set of music. I will tell you that much of the second set came about in one of those evenings when I caught a groove—bit of an odd one, honestly—that I quite enjoyed. Hope you do, too.

Episode 170

October 22, 2015

After a couple instances of deviating from course, with this episode we get back into the cadence where we begin the show with new-ish music then go a’delving in all the good stuff in the library. This time around, even the less-new music turns up a pair of artists who’ve never been played here before!

Episode 169

October 8, 2015

Next time, the host promised, we’ll get back to the format where half the show is new music and the rest digs into the library. But once I got going with the new music on this one, well, I just couldn’t stop myself. Raise your hand if you’d like to complain about hearing all new music. No one? All righty, then, let’s get this thing underway.

Episode 168

September 24, 2015

So much music, so little time. Because this podcast focuses on music that is sent to Hypnagogue for review, and because so much music is sent for review, appearances here tend to be fleeting. There are a lot of artists who’ve only appeared once on the show, and it’s not for lack of quality. So now and then I pop open my playlist spreadsheet, sort it by artist, look for those who’ve only been played here once, and give them another go-round. The flow is uninterrupted this time. See you in 90.

Episode 167

September 10, 2015

We start with a track that made me smile, and it just flows from there. By the time we reach the end, things will quiet down a bit.

Episode 166

August 27, 2015

A show that came together in two straight-through sessions of flow creation. Went pretty deep into the library for this one—had to convert some tracks that I hadn’t played before but have held onto for a while. PLUS, this episode contains the show’s 2000th track! You’ll find out which at the end! And to my friends at Spotted Peccary, who get the benefit of my putting three tracks from their releases in here because I don’t pay attention to labels when I’m deep in the mix…you’re welcome.
