Resisting the urge to do the obvious theme show, I instead opted to take you deep into the Holding Tank again. We kick off with some beats, wind down to drifts, and get a bit acoustic on the back half. There’s a quick stop in the middle, just to irk some listeners and see who sticks around. ;-)
Took a look at the Holding Tanks and the download queue and made an Executive Decision: time to go back to focusing on all the good new stuff I’ve had coming in over the last few months. You haven’t seen the last of the library, but we’ll close those doors for a bit. I promise you won’t mind much.
Time to wrap up year 13 with a nice, longer-than-normal dive into the library to celebrate the music that’s kept me going (and kept you coming back) all this time. My genuine thanks go out to all the musicians and labels who’ve kept the show fed with delicious music all this time, and to all the listeners who’ve kept my ego fed just by being here. Let’s get the party started.
*It appears the artist has removed this album. However, if you like what you heard, hit their Bandcamp page (in the link) and check out their other work. **Most of Giles’ early albums are not readily available for download. You can find them for sale on various sites. As a rule, I do not link to those types of sites as the artist may not directly benefit. Also, check out his new work with Tony Gerber.
There’s beauty and there’s darkness and then there’s dark beauty. We’ll dabble in all of those to start. The second half gets its funk on a bit and, to be honest, erupts in a bit of post-rock glory. But it all quiets down in the end. Shall we?
