Episode 21: Best of 2008 Part 1

January 11, 2009 at 3:15 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , )

This is the twenty-first edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the blog entry to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. This particular show is the first of two ‘Best of 2008’ specials, with well over an hour of some of the best tracks from 2008. There is no feature album this time because I’m focusing on as many albums from 2008 as I can, but there’s the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, including prog rock, math rock, electronica, post rock, ambient, jazz rock and general strangeness. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
