Episode 269: Best of 2018 – the best of the rest part 2

This is the 269th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You should be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Following a run of shows where the focus has been on interviews, this time around I offer part 2 of my ‘best of the rest of 2018’, featuring some of the music that didn’t get featured in either my ‘EPs of 2018’ or in my ‘top 30 albums of 2018’ shows. We have a feature album this time, ‘A Revitalization’, by Trevin and the Lamanites, a jazz/psych/classical fusion project from Brooklyn, NY, so you will hear three tracks from that. Otherwise we’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres so hopefully you will find much to enjoy. 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 and to all 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. For the next show I’ll be back again but, after three shows of focusing on 2018, next time I’ll be focusing predominantly on 2019 music, so I hope you’ll join me for that.

Episode 252: Best of 2018, Top 30 pt 2

This is the 252nd edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You should be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. Unfortunately the iTunes subscription no longer appears to be working so either download the show via the link above, or stream the show via Mixcloud (if you become a follower you can find out whenever I add new shows there) and the show can also be found on the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). I hope you enjoyed the previous show in which I started my countdown of my 30 favourite albums of 2018. Back then we covered the albums I placed between 30 and 21 in the countdown, but here we move onto the albums placed between 20 and 11. You can expect a great mixture of music in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, with two tracks each from the 10 brilliant albums in this part of the countdown. And we also have a feature artist, in the form of Sheffield-based composer, musician and polymath Jarrod Gosling, as we’ll be having three tracks featuring him on this show. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 2 hours & 17 minutes. Downloaded file is 125.4 MB.

Episode 245: Dial A Deadly Number

This is the 245th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You should be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. Unfortunately the iTunes subscription no longer appears to be working so either download the show via the link above, or stream the show via Mixcloud (if you become a follower you can find out whenever I add new shows there) and the show can also be found on the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). If you’re reading this you presumably survived the terrors unleashed by the recent Halloween special and hopefully you’re now ready for a more normal show, whatever that means. We have a feature album this time around, ‘Coming Home’, the 2014 solo album by Paul Mallyon so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And of course you can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, with lots of brand new music from 2018, and a few older tracks thrown in for good measure. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
