I’ve spent the last four shows counting down my 42 favourite albums of 2020, and you can still check out the excellent music on those shows. But this time I’m really starting to introduce you to, and catch up on, a load of 2021 releases, so you’ll find lots of great new music on this show. I’ll be mixing it up too, though, so you can expect a typically eclectic musical mix, covering different time periods and genres, including a feature album from 2018, Mitsune’ by Mitsune, an all-female shamisen trio based in Berlin, who play a dynamic mix of Japanese traditional music, modern shamisen repertoire and their own original compositions & arrangements, and you’ll hear three tracks from that throughout the show. We’ll also be starting off our new feature on the show properly, ‘Corea Talks’, as we get guests to pick their favourite tracks by the late, great Chick Corea. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks for where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 305: Best of 2020, Top 42 pt 3

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). This show continues my slightly delayed countdown of my favourite albums of 2020. It feels to me that, in an otherwise terrible year, there were so many great albums released in 2020, which meant I found it even harder than normal to get it down to a top 30, so in the end I didn’t bother, and instead I went for a top 42. For this show it’s part 3 (of 4) of my 42 favourite albums of 2020. You can expect a great mixture of music in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, with two tracks each from the albums I’ve placed between 20 and 11 in the countdown (with the big top 10 countdown being revealed next time). In addition, we’ll also have something brand new from Garden of Live Flowers and Psychic Equalizer and I’ll reflect on the passing of the late, great Chick Corea.

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.

Episode 299: 300 and Mum

This is the 299th edition (though it’s actually the 300th) 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). Many thanks to Rebsie Fairholm for kindly standing in for me on the excellent previous show. This time around it’s a very special show for a couple of reasons. First, because it’s actually the 300th edition (because sometime ago I did a ‘half’ show, & if you count that then this becomes show number 300), so that seems like a thing well worth celebrating. Second, on a much more tragic note, my Mum sadly passed away back in September, so I wanted to pay musical tribute to her in much the same way that I did for my Dad back in 2019. And as with my Dad, there wasn’t a huge overlap between my Mum’s tastes and those of a typical Eppy Gibbon playlist, so what I’ve done is pick some tracks that she loved, and I’ve scattered them throughout this show’s eclectic playlist. So, some of the tracks won’t be quite what you’re used to but there should be enough typical Eppy Gibbon music to keep everyone satisfied. There’s no feature album this time, to allow me to play the tracks dedicated to my Mum, but there’s the usual mixture of great & eclectic sounds from bands/acts you’ll know plus quite a few that you won’t. 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). Your usual host is taking a bit of a break this time but the show will go on, with regular guest presenter Rebsie Fairholm kindly standing in for him. She’ll be bringing you her own unique take on Eppy Gibbon music again. The feature album this time is ‘Yew’s Paw’ by William D. Drake. There will be three tracks from that, plus there’s the usual mixture of great & eclectic sounds from bands/acts you know & quite a lot that you won’t. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
