Episode 199

A recent binge of adding albums to the library and review queue helped form the first half of this episode–and especially the opening track, which immediately caught my ear. And although we start off quiet, we certainly don’t stay there.

*First mistake: Managed to not only NOT mention this track, but furthermore did not originally have it in the playlist because I never even entered it into my spreadsheet! Many thanks to observant listener Andrew for the catch! And apologies to Peter.

**Second mistake: During my mindless babbling at episode’s end, although I was looking right at the spreadsheet and reading songs and artists from it, I managed to mentally hiccup and not mention this track. Sorry, Ambient Visitor!

Episode 197

Good music can come from just about anywhere—including underneath a pile of CDs and folders on my table, like one of these tracks did. Dive in for some deep sounds, jazzy pleasantry, and at least one good prayer. Enjoy.

Some recent arrivals sparked the start of this episode, with three guitar-based tracks. I took this opportunity to keep my mouth shut, so you get a straight-through flow this time around. Hey, don’t get used to it…

Episode 195

I’ll admit that I sometimes get overwhelmed by how much music is sent to hypnagogue.net for review—you know that’s where music for the show comes from, right? But then I realize that I’m pretty blessed to have this much great music to share with you. I think this show has two super-solid sets for you to dig into. Enjoy.

Recipe: Equal parts new and old, drifty and beat-loaded, straight up and experimental. Shaken gently, served over ice. You may want to order more than one.
