Episode 352

Same length as usual but wow, are there a lot of tracks here. This one stays fairly firmly in New Age/contemporary instrumental territory (so, yes, ample amount of piano because that’s what gets sent my way). Clear out the full 90 for this and treat yourself.

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 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.

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.

Episode 333

Having resisted the urge to do a 3-themed show, I instead decided to kick us off with a number of tracks in the what you call your New Age kinda sorta category. Lots of piano…which I’ll mention. When the urge passes we’ll head into somewhat driftier and less piano-y zones. It’s all good, if I do say so m’self.

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.
