Episode 348

No explanation needed for this ninety-minute non-stop. Just good sounds, soft flows, and a space to spend time in.

Episode 347

Coming to you live from the depths of the holding tank, it’s the first episode of 2022! We’ll open up in contemporary instrumental territory, out there on the New Age border, then slip through a narrow passage of drone and into electronic realms. Off we go!

Episode 346

Last show of 2021. While other folks are doing their best of lists or holiday-themed shows, you and I are just going to dig into some good cuts from the library and enjoy the ride. Thanks in advance for being a great audience, and I wish you the best in the year to come!

Episode 345

As you may know, I listen to virtually no music other than that which is sent along for the podcast. True story. And as I Iisten, I keep a list of tracks that catch my ear and make me want to share them with you. Well, the list was getting long so I decided it’s high time I pruned it back a touch. Enjoy.

Realized much too late that, yes, I said “Put in an amount that is less than zero.” Elvis Costello/Bret Easton Ellis references aside, I think we both know I meant more than zero.

Episode 343

Things were getting a bit dusty in the Newish queue. Some albums had been sitting there, waiting their turn, for far too long, and were probably getting a little angry that some newer releases were getting their turn ahead of them. So I decided to step in and finish out the queue. Got quite a few tracks out of it.

Episode 342

It’s like a tale of two podcasts…we start this ride firmly in New age/contemporary instrumental territory. At the midpoint we’ll pause to fuel the engines and strap on some wings and then we’re taking off–at high velocity–to parts unknown.

Episode 341

The math in a collaborative effort is pretty simple. Artist A + Artist B = good stuff. So for the second time (the first being over 100 episodes ago) we’re going to do an “ampersand episode” and dive into some tasty musical alchemy of two artists coming together, beginning with a much-anticipated release.

Getting back into the groove after taking some time away to let my backlog of episodes catch up with me. We’ll kick off in uptempo territory, but trust me–this one turns into a smooth glide before the 90’s up. Enjoy.

Episode 338

I took one more listen to this episode about a week before its release and to be honest I caught myself drifting away in its deeper stretches. Don’t let the quirky start fool you–that’s just there to lull you into auditory submission so these tracks can wrap around your head and take you elsewhere for a while. We’ll talk in 90.
