Episode 350

It may look like doing 350 episodes of a podcast is an accomplishment, but if you think about it, it’s really just seven sets of 50. So let’s not dwell on the numbers and instead just dig into the music. No spoilers, but there’s a world record on this episode.

Episode 349

Let’s start with another of those artists I downloaded and lost in the mix, only to have them pop up in shuffle to show me the error of my ways. (Trust me, there will be more…) Electronic landscapes give way to a touch of grimness as we move toward the end, but we’ll get kind of cinematic before we’re through, so it all turns out okay.

*The things you learn… When this was sent to me, it was in a message that read, in total, “Here you go,” followed by a link. Normally I dump that kind of thing. But I asked the artist what it was, and they responded, and I grabbed this good album. When I put it into the system, iTunes showed the artist as “T.” For whatever reason, I had put it into my folders under the artist’s name, Teemu Purhonen. Made for a helluva time trying to find the track to add it… When it came time to put links into the playlist, I went back into my email and found that the only info I had was that initial download link. No artist site, etc. I did some digging on our friend the interwebtubes before bothering to email the artist. (I love a challenge…or maybe I just hate to bother people.) Took a few tries because neither T nor Teemu Purhonen were coming up when added to “Death Poems” — and “Death Poems,” it turns out, is a pretty popular title on Bandcamp, but lo and behold, I finally found that Teemu recorded this and uploaded it under the name Telefantastico. In 2015. I wish I’d been able to tell this story on the show, but I do the shows well before I add the links. But now you know…

Episode 348

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

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 339

Let us fling wide the doors to the library and see what we can pull off the stacks. As I’ll note at the start, sometimes when you go wandering among the shelves you find things you put there a while ago and then forgot about. Let’s pretend that it’s all about the joy of discovery, shall we?

For this one we’re going to start with piano and end with piano, but in between we’ll visit a whole bunch of musical spots. Many flavors to enjoy, some of them dark (and delicious!). So it’s like a music sandwich with pianos instead of bread. Hungry? Dig in!

Episode 335

Behold, the joy of the compilation album. A mixed bag of treats, usually wrapped around a theme but sometimes not, a gaggle of musical delights to sample, an organized tangle of styles, interpretations, and inspirations. Hmm…sounds a lot like a certain podcast I know. Come on inside.

Wrapping up year 12 with an extended episode. As always, thank you all very much for tuning in to this little hobby of mine and for putting up with my quirks and lack of genre-appropriate seriousness. Now it’s time to pour the drinks and cut some cake and get this birthday party started!
