Episode 357

Oh, heck, you know the drill. There’s a bunch of great music to soothe your noggin and then some guy blabs in your ear for a bit. If you didn’t like it, you wouldn’t keep coming back! (So thank you for coming back.)

Episode 354

Sequencers light the fuse on this one, which rolls through some work wrapped around spoken word, picks up some tabla and blistering guitar along the way, and, as happens so often here, glides in hushed ambient tones to a mind-salving conclusion. Talk to you in 90.

There’s beauty and there’s darkness and then there’s dark beauty. We’ll dabble in all of those to start. The second half gets its funk on a bit and, to be honest, erupts in a bit of post-rock glory. But it all quiets down in the end. Shall we?

Episode 350

It may look like doing 350 episodes of a podcast is an accomplishment, but if you think about it, it’s really just seven sets of 50. So let’s not dwell on the numbers and instead just dig into the music. No spoilers, but there’s a world record on this episode.

Episode 342

It’s like a tale of two podcasts…we start this ride firmly in New age/contemporary instrumental territory. At the midpoint we’ll pause to fuel the engines and strap on some wings and then we’re taking off–at high velocity–to parts unknown.

Getting back into the groove after taking some time away to let my backlog of episodes catch up with me. We’ll kick off in uptempo territory, but trust me–this one turns into a smooth glide before the 90’s up. Enjoy.

This one, I won’t even try to categorize. One track kicks it off, and the next grabs a thread and comes along for the ride, trailing an idea that the next track latches onto, which informs and influences the song that comes next and …
You get it. We’re diving into the flow and following the feeling.
