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!

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!

Who’s responsible for this flow going so deep? Well, Max Corbacho is up first so maybe that set the tone and we just, you know, went from there. Personally, I’d blame the guy who sat down and put this together. He clearly just wanted you to float for a while. A good long while. Enjoy the ride.

If I may be so bold as to say so myself, this is one of those episodes that, I feel, exemplifies what makes this show different from many others. There is a range of soundworlds on display here, light and dark, sacred and secular, each unique but for subtle sonic connections that helped guide me through the flow. Close your eyes for this one.

Let’s move into the new year with some new (more or less) music. There’s a spot about a half-hour in where I hand it all off to some piano players for a bit. They seem like nice people. The last 45 or so is a nice, deep drift that will send you places.
