This is the 146th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. The show is also available via Mixcloud here. I’m just starting my review of 2014 and I begin it with three shows in which I count down my top 30 albums, starting with a show that features the albums at numbers 30 to 21. There’s no feature album this time, just tracks from 10 great albums that were released last year, covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, including prog rock, jazz, electronica, trip hop, ambient, art rock, avant prog, psychedelic folk-pop, post rock, and all sorts of other weird & wonderful music. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
