Episode 107: Best of 2012; my top 21 countdown, pt1

July 28, 2013 at 7:42 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , )

This is the 107th 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 the fourth of five of my rather delayed ‘Best of 2012’ shows, and finally features the first half of my top 21 countdown of my very favourite releases of last year (you’ll hear the second half on the next show). There’s no feature album this time around, just lots of great music from the UK, the US, Russia, & beyond. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks to where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 1 hour & 28 minutes. Downloaded file is 80.9 MB.
