Episode 73: Prelude to the Best of 2011

January 15, 2012 at 3:55 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , )

This is the 73rd edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. This show is my first of 2012 so happy new year! I’ve still got to bring you my ‘best of 2011’ shows and this sort of represents a lead in to those shows, as we look back to 2011, with a couple of things looking ahead to 2012 and a few older things thrown in for good measure. The feature album is 2008’s ‘Rare Weather’ by American band Jack O’ The Clock, plus there will be the usual diverse selection of tracks and artists from around the world (mainly from the US this time, though for no particular reason). Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks to where you can find more information about each artist.
