Episode 336: Best of the rest of 2021 pt 1

This is the 336th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). After the previous show when we celebrated 15 years of Eppy Gibbon, it’s now back to business as usual and specifically that involves me playing some of the best music from 2021 that didn’t get featured in my top 32 albums of last year. We have a feature album from 2021, ‘Kinematic’, from experimental electronic music collective Longstone, and you’ll hear three fabulous tracks from it throughout the course of the show. In addition, you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture, with a focus on music from albums and singles released in 2021, plus a reminder about this year’s EppyFest. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 333: Wish You Were Here

This is the 333rd edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). As I was putting this show together, the sun was shining, and I was thinking ahead to my own return to live music – not only with the forthcoming return of EppyFest but also because in April I will hopefully be attending my first live gigs since 2020, including some at this year’s Cheltenham Jazz Festival. So, on this show, there’s no feature album, but instead I’m going to be featuring music from a number of acts that, all being well, you’ll be able to see perform live in the weeks and months to come. You can expect a great mixture of music on this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, including music from some 2022 releases, plus some dips into the past. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 320: Return of the Cybernauts

This is the 320th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). On this show I have another typically eclectic mixture of music for you, with another strong focus on 2021 releases, mixed up with some great older stuff too, including some dips into the 1970s. We also have a feature album, ‘Pilfershire Lane’, the 2009 album by American producer, singer, musician, remixer and score composer Tara Busch, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. In addition, you can expect lots of other great new names to the show plus some familiar old friends, so it should be a nice mixture. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 314: Best of the rest of 2020

This is the 314th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Last time around, we had a half-term report, focusing on some of the very best music from the first six months of 2021, but this time I’m reviewing some of the best music from 2020 that didn’t get included in my top 42 albums countdown of last year. I’ll be covering the usual eclectic mix of styles, genres and the unclassifiable but with a focus on music from albums, EPs and singles released in 2020. And we have a feature album on this show, inevitably from 2020, ‘Artefact’, an impressive and eclectic album by Kashgar, the vehicle for the solo compositions of Marcus Taylor, exploring the interface of jazz, rock and world styles, and you’ll hear three tracks from that on the playlist. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 311: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Station

This is the 311th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Last time around, we had a playlist that mostly focused on the achievements of women in music. Well, this time around, my main focus is to play you lots of great 2021 music, with the occasional dip into the past. There’s no feature album this time around because I’ve been getting a bit behind with my coverage of new releases, so instead I want to cover tracks from as many releases as possible. But don’t worry, because across the show we’ll have a typically eclectic playlist, including another return to our Corea Talks feature and a tribute to the late, great Malcolm Cecil. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 310: Not International Women’s Day

This is the 310th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). After two shows focusing on interviews, this time around we’re getting back to basics – it’s just me and a lot of music. We do have a vague theme to the show, though, as we are very belatedly reflecting on International Women’s Day with a playlist that mostly focuses on the achievements of women in music. Our feature band for this show reflects that theme as you’ll hear three tracks from the much missed all-female unit The Puppets. Across the show, we’ll have a typically eclectic playlist, including a return to our Corea Talks feature and lots of 2021 music. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
