Gads, I’ve been locked out of my studio and the curator of the Hypnagogue sound library has taken over the show!

Well, enjoy anyway.

We start with a song I love because it is both funky and silly. From there we touch on jazz, post-rock, ambient, space…and that’s just in the first half.

How shall we start the new year? How about with some music? Figured that might be a good idea. This is an uninterrupted flow, but has both the new stuff and the library jams. Enjoy, and welcome to 2016!

This year’s look back at reviewed albums clocks in at two hours. I received so much amazing music in 2015 (and late 2014, honestly) that there was no way this was going to come in at our regular 90 minutes. Enjoy, and thank you so very much for being a listener.

While the first half of this episode dwells mostly in well-lighted places, the second half will dip into darker venues. You can handle that, right?

Episode 172

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.

*This compilation may be out of circulation. The label, Xynthetic, went dormant for a bit but came back on Bandcamp. It does not look like they’ve yet re-upped Second Statement. I gave you the link anyway.

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.
