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 330: Best of 2021, The Top 10

This is the 330th 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). With this show I conclude my slightly delayed countdown of my favourite albums of 2021. Last year was certainly another difficult one in many ways, but one upside is that there were many great albums released in 2021, so it was difficult to settle on a top 30, so in the end I didn’t bother, and instead I went for a top 32. For this show it’s part 3 (of 3) of my 32 favourite albums of 2021, the big top 10. You can expect a great mixture of music in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, with two tracks each from the amazing albums I’ve placed between 10 and 1 in the countdown. We’ll also kick things off with a tribute to the late, great Ian McDonald, who sadly passed away just as I was putting this show together. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Thanks to all the musicians who contributed, particularly to Michelle Lecnik for the interview and her musical choices, and of course to all of you listeners. Send us comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). If you want to keep up to date with news about the show, EppyFest, or just chat with other listeners, don’t forget that there’s a Facebook group – just search for the Eppy Gibbon Podcast Show on Facebook and request to join, plus don’t forget that we’re now part of the Progzilla Radio Network. I’m going to be experiencing a very busy period of work over the next month, so for the next two shows, your host will be the wonderful Rebsie Fairholm who will be offering the usual eclectic mixture of music, only slightly different. We hope to see you back for that.

Episode 322: Death’s Door

This is the 322nd edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note that 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). It’s that time of the year again, so for this show we have the return of the diabolical Count Eppy Gibbon, who will again be your ghoulish host for this year’s Halloween special. We have a feature album on this show, ‘Arcana’, the 2020 solo album by one of the Count’s favourite artists, Richard Wileman, and you’ll hear three tracks from that album throughout the playlist. Other than that, you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of music, only with a bit more of a spooky theme this time around. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 2 hours and 23 minutes. Downloaded file is 130.7 MB.
