This is the 62nd edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. This show is astonishingly my first of 2011, following another excellent guest slot from Rebsie and Daniel of Alchymical Muse back in February – thanks to them for keeping the show going during a very busy and stressful time for me, and for bringing with them some excellent music. I’ve still got to bring you my ‘best of 2010’ shows and this sort of represents a lead in to those shows, as we look back to 2010, with a couple of things from 2011 and a few older things thrown in for good measure. The feature album is ‘Neuborns’ by American band Dufus, plus there will be the usual diverse selection of tracks and artists from around the world. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks to where you can find more information about each artist.
