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.

Brief bit of opening music came from
Oh, nothing much. Just 90 more minutes of really tasty musical treats. Things get a bit droney for a while, and we spend a good bit of time with contemporary composers. Definitely an episode for those with eclectic tastes. We’re all over the map here. Settle in, open mind.

There are a lot of drone textures in this episode, designed to take you to a deeper place. Okay, some of this gets down into some darkness, but I’ll energize the ride as we get toward the end. Enjoy.

Resisting the urge to do the obvious theme show, I instead opted to take you deep into the Holding Tank again. We kick off with some beats, wind down to drifts, and get a bit acoustic on the back half. There’s a quick stop in the middle, just to irk some listeners and see who sticks around. ;-)
