Episode 250: Two’s A Crowd

This is the 250th 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. 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 is currently occupied with work, so Daniel Staniforth and Rebsie Fairholm are kindly sitting in again to present one of their takes on Eppy Gibbon music. The feature album is ‘The Chopin Project’ by Ólafur Arnalds & Alice Sara Ott, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. Other than that you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of styles and genres. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
