I really enjoy the days when I unpack a batch of downloads for the show. I put them into the system and give each a preview listen as I start unzipping the next one. There are always these wonderful moments of discovery when a new album just hits me and I know I just have to share it with my listeners. There’s plenty of that in this episode, plus a half-hour’s cruise with Sverre Knut Johansen.
Hypnagogue Half-hour Spotlight: Sverre Knut Johansen
30.11 Paleozoic Era (Transformation – Animals and Plants Emanate onto Land), Precambrian (with Robert Rich)
41.37 Contact, Contact
45.54 Found, Earth From Above
49.44 Space and Time, The Vast Expanse
All things considered, this is a pretty uptempo episode. Sure, we get a little quiet in the middle when the Spotlight falls on the erstwhile Matt Borghi and his ambient-and-otherwise guitar stylings, but we finish on a high note.
Call it a lazy podcast with a twist–it’s long tracks, and just a few, but these tracks are taken from the middle section of pieces 45 minutes or longer in length. We start off where you might expect, and finish where you definitely did not.
