Episode 372

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.

Episode 365

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. ;-)

Now that the birthday party fervor has died down, we can get back to checking out new music for a bit. Then it’s into the library, beginning with a kind of new and possibly recurring segment…

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!

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.

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.
