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 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?

Episode 338

I took one more listen to this episode about a week before its release and to be honest I caught myself drifting away in its deeper stretches. Don’t let the quirky start fool you–that’s just there to lull you into auditory submission so these tracks can wrap around your head and take you elsewhere for a while. We’ll talk in 90.

Episode 337

You may not realize this, but it’s not always easy to write this little introductory note for each show. I mean, how many ways can I find to say, “Here’s another batch of music that really caught my ear–you have to hear it!” Because that’s what we’re doing again…hanging out to listen to the good stuff that rolled into Hypnagogue HQ lately. File under “Good Problem to Have”…

Episode 336

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 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.

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!

Episode 331

Let’s fire this one up. There’s electronic music galore, an old favorite returns (without whom this whole Hypnagogue thing might not have happened–we’ll get to that), and I crack myself up because sometimes me are not goodest with words. Why leave it in? Because we ain’t like them fancy podcasts…

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.
