Episode 292


I get some pretty weird music around here sometimes, and it needs to be heard, too. So we start there and journey forth. If it’s not particular your cup of joy, stick around–we’ll pay a visit to our old friend analog around the middle part, and close off with some long drifts. No stops on this one.

Welcome to 2020, everyone. Wow, that sounds so futuristic… We’ll kick off the year with some uptempo cuts, spend 30 with our friend Colin Rayment, then knock a few items off the “must play” list hanging in the library. By the way, time to take off that New Year’s Eve party hat…

All around the interwebtubenets, podcasts and blogs are ladling out their “Best of” lists for 2019. Yay, them. If that’s your year-end bag, you should listen to those, too. But I’ve decided to leave that to them and just give you some more Newish queue cuts to drop into. Enjoy, and thanks for being here this year.

*I didn’t have this info when I recorded (and I should have), but I have to give a shout out to guitarist Miguel Engel Arcengelus–his work on this track just blew me away.

Episode 286


I make it a habit to keep track of tracks that give an “ooh” moment, either while I’m shuffling the Newish queue or when the library is picking out the music in the office. And sometimes, I refer back to those tracks I’ve tracked and I make a podcast out of them. A mix of new and library this time, with the tracks from the stacks up front.
