This is the 154th 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 and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show is now appearing on Progzilla in alternate weeks). After my recent ’40 at 40′ specials and the Sanguine Hum interview I need to catch up with some 2015 releases, which is primarily what this show is about, but we also have a feature album ‘Come Up For Air’, the 2006 album by Norweigan band The White Birch, and there will be three tracks off that. The show will cover the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, including prog rock, jazz, math rock, folk, electronica, Canterbury, avant prog 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.
