Episode 123: Best of 2013, the best of the rest pt1

This is the 123rd 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 is a packed show featuring lots and lots of great music from 2013 that didn’t get into my top 30 albums of the year, including some great EPs and singles. There’s also a preview of a couple of the acts appearing at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival in May and a look ahead to the new solo album from Matt Stevens. There’s no feature album again but there’s still lots of interesting music to hear on this show. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks to where you can find more information about each artist.
