As you may know if you listened last time, there’s been an unusual amount of flute-based music coming into the tanks lately, so we will start things off there. A quick stop and then we’re off again, powered by some Berlin School-style energy and ending up with a whole bunch of bass guitar.

Holding Tanks 1 and 2 continue to drain even as I fill Tank 3, and the result is an interesting flow that weighs a bit heavily on the dark, quiet side. Some of this music has sat waiting for me to get to it for a year or so — but thankfully, good music doesn’t have an expiration date. Dig in and enjoy.

*Who switched up the track and album names in the voice-over? That would be me.
Let’s start off with a few Artists John Forgot before diving into the Holding Tanks for some clearly more unforgettable (by me) music.

I wouldn’t go so far as to call this a lazy podcast, but… It’s only got eight tracks, some of them are pretty long, and it stays quite quiet. So, semi-lazy, and you still get 90 minutes out of it. Enjoy.

A nice balance of light and dark in this one. When we hit the shadows we don’t stay long, but the sensation may linger. All in all this one stays fairly low-key.

Bit of a short first set, but as usual it ends right where it was supposed to. We get into some intriguing spaces in the second set, and bring it all in for a smooth and quiet landing.

*Well, there was a link when it was sent to me, but that doesn’t work. And I see where other sites have linked to the label, Iapetus, but it’s not there, either. I’m writing this well ahead of the show’s release, so maybe it’ll magically reappear before then. If you’re reading this…it didn’t.
Time to get our hush on with 90 minutes of nice, quiet music. No bumps, no surprises, no stops. One might go so far as to say you could meditate to this one. Don’t get used to it, though…

It’s the last show of 2022, but we’re not going to look back. Oh no, my friend. We are going to stare straight down the barrel of a fully loaded Holding Tanks and say, with an appropriately unnerving grin, “Let’s see what you’ve got.” Seventeen cuts of goodness, that’s what.
As ever, thank you for being here, whether it’s been the whole year or you’re just figuring out that this is a thing. And for the long-timers…you da best.

Whither shall we wander this time around? To groves of musical grooviness and gardens of unearthly aural delight? Sure, you could put it that way. Or we could just call it 90 in the Holding Tank, drenching ourselves in good new music.

It is “ray-days,” essentially, and is Spanish for “networks.” In my defense, “rede” is an archaic English word meaning counsel or story. So maybe it was just my limited readings of Chaucer sneaking up on me and not the fact that I am myself somewhat archaic.
