This is the thirty-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 Wintry, festive, seasonal, solstice, Christmas-type special, with well over an hour of the usual eclectic mixture of music on offer but with a festive or seasonal twist. The feature album this time around is ‘Crowe Jam’, a collection of guitar instrumentals by Tennessee guitarist Charlie Crowe. In addition, you’ll hear electronica, psych folk, jazz, prog rock, quirky pop, post rock, experimental music and virtually everything else in between from around the world, including the US, Indonesia and the UK. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
