This is the 213th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO LISTEN 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). This latest show is a return to my review of the musical year of 2016 – you’ve heard my countdown of my 30 favourite albums of last year, but now here’s a chance to hear more of the best of the rest – some great albums, EPs, singles & tracks that didn’t make the top 30 but still deserve to be heard. There’s no feature album this time but you can expect a typically eclectic musical mix. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
