Episode 328: Best of 2021, Top 32 pt 1

This is the 328th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). With this show I begin my slightly delayed countdown of my favourite albums of 2021. Last year was certainly another difficult one in many ways, but one upside is that there were many great albums released in 2021, so it was difficult to settle on a top 30, so in the end I didn’t bother, and instead I went for a top 32. For this show it’s part 1 (of 3) of my 32 favourite albums of 2021. You can expect a great mixture of music in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, with two tracks each from the albums I’ve placed between 32 and 21 in the countdown (you’ll hear the top 20 countdown over the course of the next two shows). Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks).

This time I’ll largely be mopping up some tracks from 2021 releases ahead of my upcoming countdown of my favourite albums of last year, so you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of music. We have a feature artist this time around, as I reflect on the sad passing of singer-songwriter and musician David Longdon, who sadly left us back on 20th November last year, and you’ll hear three tracks featuring him across the course of the show by way of tribute. You can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, including some music from 2021, some older tracks of various vintages thrown in for good measure, and a tribute to two people we have lost recently, the late, great Michael Nesmith & Stephen Sondheim.

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks).

We have a feature album on this show, ‘H. P. Lovecraft II’, the second album by the American psychedelic rock band H. P. Lovecraft, released back in September 1968, and you’ll hear three tracks from that album throughout the playlist. Other than that, you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of music, only with a bit more of a Rebsie spin to it, plus there’s a track played in tribute to the late, great David Longdon, sadly taken away from us just recently and far too soon. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Thanks to all the musicians who contributed to this show, and to all listeners. Send us comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). If you want to keep up to date with news about the show, EppyFest, or just chat with other listeners, don’t forget that there’s a Facebook group – just search for the Eppy Gibbon Podcast Show on Facebook and request to join, plus don’t forget that we’re now part of the Progzilla Radio Network. Next time, I’ll be back with a show featuring a typically excellent and eclectic mixture of music, plus there will be a feature album from 1984 but related to a 2021 film release, and lots of new music from 2021, so I hope you’ll come back for that.

Episode 319: Sisters With Transistors

This is the 319th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). On this show I have another typically eclectic mixture of music for you, with another strong focus on 2021 releases, mixed up with some great older stuff too. As part of the playlist, we’ll look ahead to some forthcoming live music that you might wish go out and see with other human beings (remember that?!). And although there won’t be a feature album, there will be a theme running through the show relating to an excellent music documentary film released this year, ‘Sisters With Transistors’, so you’ll hear four tracks from some of electronic music’s female pioneers scattered throughout the playlist. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
