Taking a break from my seemingly never-ending review of 2014 this show previews a couple of upcoming festivals, particularly my own EppyFest 4. We also return to three of the show’s semi-regular features, including having a feature album, which this time has an EppyFest connection as it’s ‘Lightships’ by the band Firefly Burning who are on at this year’s festival. We’ll also cover the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, including prog rock, jazz, electronica, progressive pop, trip hop, neo-classical, math rock, pronk rock and all sorts of other weird & wonderful music. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 124: Best of 2013, the best of the rest pt2

This is the 124th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. You can also listen via Mixcloud here.
