Episode 315: Here If You Listen

This is the 315th 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, I reviewed some of the best music from 2020 that didn’t get included in my top 42 albums countdown of last year. But this time, there will be much more of a focus on 2021 releases, mixed up with some great older stuff too, and covering the usual eclectic mixture of musical styles. And we have a feature album on this show, ‘Here If You Listen’, the highly impressive 2018 release by David Crosby and his collaborators Michael League, Becca Stevens and Michelle Willis, and you’ll hear three tracks from that throughout the playlist. There will also be a tribute to the late, great Jon Hassell. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 313: Half-term report, 2021

This is the 313th 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 another of my occasional TV Themes specials, but this time we’re back to my more usual focus on new music, without a TV theme in sight. Because we’re near the half-way point of the year, I thought this would be a good time to do a show that entirely focuses on music from 2021, as I bring you some of the best music to be found on albums, EPs and singles released so far this year. I’m trying to cram in as much music as possible from many different releases, so therefore there will not be a feature album for this show. But I will be covering the usual eclectic mix of styles, genres and the unclassifiable. 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.

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). I hope you enjoyed the previous very special and bittersweet show. This time, however, it’s this year’s festive edition, so you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of music only this time all the tracks will have some form of wintry/Christmas/solstice theme. We have a feature album this time around, ‘The Essential Now That’s What I Call an a.P.A.t.T. Christmas Vol 1’, the 2019 compilation album by a.P.A.t.T., which contains 12 songs released over 13 years as part of the band’s annual challenge to record and release a song for each day of Christmas, and you’ll hear three tracks from that across the course of the show. You can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, including some new music from 2020, some older tracks of various vintages thrown in for good measure, and a tribute to the late, great Harold Budd. All-in-all, expect a unique festive-themed extravaganza with lots of great music and pleasant surprises. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 296: The Living Dead

This is the 296th 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 don’t quite have a feature album on this show, we do feature tracks that appeared on one of the two soundtrack albums for the TV series ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’, and you’ll hear three tracks from those soundtracks 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.

For the next show, in a couple of weeks’ time, we are excited to be focusing on the brand new album by favourites of the show, Sanguine Hum, with three tracks from the new album, ‘A Trace of Memory’, plus music selected by the members of the band. I hope to see you back for that.

Episode 282: Pearl and Eddie

This is the 282nd 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). I hope you enjoyed the previous show, the latest of our TV Themes Specials. But if that show was largely about nostalgia, with this show we are much more focused on now, with most of the music coming from brilliant 2020 releases, with the occasional older track thrown in for good measure. And last time we had a feature album, but this time we have a feature artist/band, the musician and singer-songwriter Eddie Vedder and the band he helped to found, Pearl Jam, so you’ll hear three tracks featuring Vedder, two with Pearl Jam and one without. In addition, you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Following our recent festive edition of the show, this time I’m back with what might be considered more of a ‘normal’ show, plus it’s the last show of 2019. We have a feature album this time around, ‘Silent Sentinel’, the 2015 album by the American band Advent, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And of course you can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, including lots of 2019 music. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
