This is the forty-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 second of three ‘Best of 2009’ specials, with over an hour of some of the best tracks from 2009. There is no feature album again this time because I’m focusing on as many albums from 2009 as I can, but there’s the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, including prog rock, chill out, folk rock, psych rock and general strangeness. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
Total running time: 1 hour and 29 minutes. Downloaded file is 81.7 MB.
