Episode 102: Prelude to the Best of 2012

May 21, 2013 at 1:45 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , )

This is the 102nd edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. You can also listen via Mixcloud here. This edition of the show represents a mixture of a prelude to my forthcoming ‘Best of 2012’ shows, a look at a few of 2013’s new releases, and some bits & bobs that are here because, well, just because really. There’s no feature album this time around, just lots of great music from the UK, the US & Italy. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks to where you can find more information about each artist.
