Episode 186: Best of 2015 – the best of the rest, part 2

August 8, 2016 at 5:23 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , )

This is the 186th 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 and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show is now appearing on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Following my last show, a half-term report filled with some of the best music released in the first six to seven months of 2016, this time around I return to my ongoing review of some of the best music from last year. We have a feature album on this show, ‘Soft Rains’, the 2015 album by Zarelli (feat. Leonard Nimoy), and there will be three tracks from that. In addition you can expect the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, with most of the music taken from 2015. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
