Episode 235: A Surfeit of H2O

This is the 235th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. If you prefer, you can subscribe to the show via iTunes by sticking feeds2.feedburner.com/TheEpilepticGibbonPodcastMusicShow into the ‘Subscribe to podcast’ area & then you’ll get the new shows as they become available. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Your regular host returns with this show (he’s very grateful for Daniel Staniforth & Rebsie Fairholm filling in for him on the last show), which largely focuses on new music from 2018, but with the occasional diversion into the past. As part of the latter we have a feature album, which is ‘Northern Folk’, the 2015 debut album by Swedish folk prodigy Jenny Lysander so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And otherwise we’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, plus there’s another nod to the upcoming EppyFest 7. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
