Episode 254: Silent Dust

This is the 254th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You should be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. Unfortunately the iTunes subscription no longer appears to be working so either download the show via the link above, or stream the show via Mixcloud (if you become a follower you can find out whenever I add new shows there) and the show can also be found on the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). I hope you enjoyed the previous show in which I counted down my 10 favourite albums of 2018. But this time we’re much more focused on 2019 music, so you’ll hear lots of great music released so far this year, plus we’ll also have a featured artist, the mighty Esperanza Spalding, so we’ll have three tracks either from or featuring her, plus we pay tribute to the sadly recently departed Mark Hollis & Hal Blaine. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 2 hours & 33 minutes. Downloaded file is 140.2 MB.
