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.

Episode 157

April 22, 2015

From heavy electronics to the clean sound of solo piano, from the rich resonance of voice to the smooth tone of the Chapman stick, on this episode we’re going a little bit of everywhere.

Episode 156

April 9, 2015

We’ll escape to place where lillies bloom and Elvis sightings are common through brilliant clouds thanks to the surface gravity. But it’s no mystery that our someday will come and we’ll be lifted out of victimization, climbing from our holes and waving our tendrils smartly. Okay, enough of me trying to be clever. On to the music.

Episode 155

March 25, 2015

On the menu this time: 45 minutes or so of delectable items from the review queue (okay, some of them have some fairly exotic flavors) followed by a batch of perfectly aged cuts. And that will be quite enough of me belaboring a metaphor, even if it does match my terribly clever opening bit.
