Happy new year! This is the ninth edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the blog entry to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. This particular show is a best of 2007 special, with about two hours of music taken from albums released last year. There’s no feature album this month as I’ve tried to cram in as much music from as many of the best and most interesting artists who released music in 2007. You’ll also be able to find out which albums made my top ten for 2007 as I count them down. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
