Since you all did a fine job of surviving last episode’s dark and murky spaces, I’ll reward you with lighter, brighter tones. There’s quite a bit of guitar in the front half.

(Clever me, originally putting all those ampersands in between the artist names. Well, turns out that screwed up the RSS feed. So, after the episode posted I have to switch them all to “and.”)

Episode 222

Let’s kick this off with a snappy uptempo thing. Then maybe later we’ll go quieter and more ambient. This 90-minute flow runs pretty deep. Headphones on, if you please.

Episode 221

Is the quiet of the new digs seeping into the podcast? If it is, I think we can probably agree that it wouldn’t be a bad thing at all. The show doesn’t start all that quietly, but we’ll certainly get there before we’re through.
