    Eppy, this was a very enjoyable music show, for me.

    I’m glad you featured the Bursers, i found them very good, especially “Safe Keeping.”

    The Moorlandt introduction i have heard before, and who cannot enjoy that?!

    But it was especially fitting for the beautiful song by Laudanum. :)

    I also loved the drums, harmonies and vocal textures of Khao by Ben Heckler

    I already mentioned the Bursers’ Safe Keeping – but of all the songs i heard by them on this show, this is my favorite. It started out with a music box theme that would naturally have me enthralled but it moved on to an eerie background vocal: and combined with the scratchy bass and fluttery sounds, this is really a captivating track for me.

    I also loved the song from Earliz, Attractive – it has a catchy-yet-original-sounding progression, and the vocalist is lovely and expressive and still right on key. (Not sure if i should add this, but, having been in community theater and also a singer-songwriter, this is great. No one would guess the complexity that goes into both singing and emoting, and there’s a wonderful subtlety here.)

    I love the atmosphere of Nosounds’ Kites – the simplicity and how it builds on that and creates its own atmosphere.

    Love Ex Reverie’s The Crowning, that really draws me in… and out… i like the theme and the rhythm.

    Also loved Antiqcool – very much! Oh Mary. So nice!

    And you ended the show with a lovely one, i love the sounds and texures. It is a very nice mix.

    Thanks for another lovely show, Epileptic Gibbon! :)
