Episode 272


No stops on this one, and we’re keeping it a little on the quieter side. A definite headphone listen.

Episode 256


Well, I hadn’t intended to get back to “normal” with an uninterrupted flow, buy by the time I reached a “maybe I stop here” moment, we were a good hour in. So why stop there, right? All Newish tunes, with a turn toward the quieter side once you hit that George L Smyth piece…  Enjoy.

Episode 253


I couldn’t do it. I just couldn’t look at the list of great albums that I didn’t have space for on Episode 252 without thinking, “You know, many of my episodes are 11 tracks long…”

So here we go, friends—11 tracks from 11 more albums that gave your ol’ buddy Hypnagogue a solid whack in the listens in 2018.

Episode 252

As much as I enjoy looking back over the music that’s been sent to the show in the last year, pulling together a playlist is a bit of a chore–but a pretty cool one. The chore is not just pointing out what albums really made an impact on me; it’s also about giving you a nice, deep listen. There are 19 tracks to dig into in this uninterrupted journey (20 if you count my way of saying “Thank You” via Adam Werner), and having head-tested the flow a couple of times now, I can say–yeah, it’s a nice, deep listen.

As always, thank you all for listening in the year gone by. The subscriber base has grown beautifully. At the beginning of the year it was about 450; now it’s over 635. So welcome, and thanks for hanging out, and happy listening. More to come in 2019.

“Hey, John,” the flow said to me somewhere in the midst of my putting it together, “you may want to just sit this one out.” So I did.

Episode 246


I have a playlist in my iTunes labeled “Night.” It’s for music I want to wind down to, to have in the background as evening deepens around me out here at the edge of the marsh. You can listen to this one any time you feel like getting your shhhh on…but I do invite you to try it some fine evening of your own.
