Episode 173: Best of 2015, Top 31 pt 1

February 7, 2016 at 8:07 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , )

This is the 173rd 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). And so it begins, my review of the musical year of 2015. I will be starting my countdown of my favourite albums and releases of last year at number 31 & moving down to 21, so there won’t be a feature album but there will be two tracks from each of the releases I have picked out. As well as that, I’ll also be paying tribute to a couple of artists who have sadly died in the past couple of weeks since the last show was released. Overall you can expect the usual eclectic musical mix. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
