Time to get our hush on with 90 minutes of nice, quiet music. No bumps, no surprises, no stops. One might go so far as to say you could meditate to this one. Don’t get used to it, though…

New year, same show. Same unserious host. Same great music for 90 minutes for the same great listeners.

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.

Whither shall we wander this time around? To groves of musical grooviness and gardens of unearthly aural delight? Sure, you could put it that way. Or we could just call it 90 in the Holding Tank, drenching ourselves in good new music.

It is “ray-days,” essentially, and is Spanish for “networks.” In my defense, “rede” is an archaic English word meaning counsel or story. So maybe it was just my limited readings of Chaucer sneaking up on me and not the fact that I am myself somewhat archaic.
Strap in for a fresh round of the best ambient, electronic, and contemporary instrumental out there. We start off with some primal grooves and wind up somewhere deep in space. Enjoy.

Took a look at the Holding Tanks and the download queue and made an Executive Decision: time to go back to focusing on all the good new stuff I’ve had coming in over the last few months. You haven’t seen the last of the library, but we’ll close those doors for a bit. I promise you won’t mind much.

*The album was sent to me with no title, so at the time of recording I figured it was self-titled. On the release day of the podcast, the artist got back to me with the actual title, Inferno.
We’re off to a slick start with some smooth sax and sliding our way down into some drifty grooves. Then we’re off to the library to visit some old friends. (One going back to ’05!)
