(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.

With so much good music hanging out in the Newish queue, I decided we’d just stay there this time. You’ll find ambient, post-rock, and chill all in one place.

Back to our regular cadence, where the Newish stuff gets its due first, then we delve. And hey, don’t get freaked out by the track with lyrics…I’ll explain.

Episode 218

Ready for a bit of an old-school joyride? This show was supposed to only start with some Berlin School music. Then it kinda got away from me. Buckle up for 90 minutes of analog goodness.

*Let’s ignore the fact that in my closing VO, I get the order of these two tracks wrong. Originally, “Bridge_2” did come before “Undersea Miner.” Then I decided it was better the other way. So, musically, I moved them. Did I bother to update my cheat sheet at the time I was recording? Of course not. But now at least the playlist is right. (You don’t really listen to me babble at the end, do you?)

Episode 217

On a whim, I decided that we will start this episode by showcasing piano works. Hey, they’re nice. In the second half we’ll let other instruments come out and play.
