This is the forty-seventh edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the blog entry to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. This is a very special show celebrating the third anniversary of this podcast, with the focus on the favourite acts played on the show over the last three years as voted for by you, the listeners. There’s no feature album this time around because we’re focusing solely on counting down the 19 favourite artists, bands and acts according to the number of votes they received. You’ll hear music from genres such prog rock, psych folk, jazz, electronica, chamber pop, folktronica, ambient, electroacoustic gothic, and virtually everything else in between from the US, Canada, and the UK. 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 let me play their music and thanks to all you listeners too, particularly those of you who voted in this poll. Send me comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). If you’re not happy with the way the poll worked out, well I’ll probably do another one in another three years! I’m not exactly sure what the next episode is going to involve but there’s lots going on at the moment so expect something interesting in the not too distant future – coming up soon are some interviews, guest presenters, artists and bands that didn’t make the top 19 in the poll, a kosmiche music special,  and a cello special (seriously!).
