Episode 357

Oh, heck, you know the drill. There’s a bunch of great music to soothe your noggin and then some guy blabs in your ear for a bit. If you didn’t like it, you wouldn’t keep coming back! (So thank you for coming back.) Start David Pedrick, The Golden Hour, Aurora4.35 David […]

Episode 356

5/12/2022
Once again we start in the Holding Tank to see what’s been sent along. (Turns out it’s a bit of harp, guitar, and piano, among other things.) After that we’ll shuffle through the shelves and see what musical delicacies we can uncover. Bound to be tasty. Start Trine Opsahl, Do Not Simply Pass […]

A shadowy first set full of newer music gives way to some sequencer-driven cuts from the library. There’s a point where you’ll want to buckle up. It gets wild… Enjoy. Start øjeRum, Aftenrøde, Støvfald15.53 Leila Abdul-Rauf, Distortions in Phantasy IV: Disembodiment, Phantasiai 20.42 The Broken Cradle, Awakening, Post Mortal26.15 blochemy, […]

Episode 354

4/14/2022
Sequencers light the fuse on this one, which rolls through some work wrapped around spoken word, picks up some tabla and blistering guitar along the way, and, as happens so often here, glides in hushed ambient tones to a mind-salving conclusion. Talk to you in 90. Start LAD, Impulse, Fluidity6.08 Norm […]

Shall we keep things on the quiet side? I believe we shall. Vocal drifts, hushed tones, and deep spaces await. Come in and explore. Start Julien Demoulin, Dissolving in Silence, Everything Forgotten, Everything Remembered5.26 Hiram, First Breath, Water Rise9.01 San Mateo, The Hiding Places, The Mira Variable14.21 Serena […]

Episode 352

3/17/2022
Same length as usual but wow, are there a lot of tracks here. This one stays fairly firmly in New Age/contemporary instrumental territory (so, yes, ample amount of piano because that’s what gets sent my way). Clear out the full 90 for this and treat yourself. Start Riopy, Be a Prelude, Bliss3.34 […]

Episode 351

3/3/2022
There’s beauty and there’s darkness and then there’s dark beauty. We’ll dabble in all of those to start. The second half gets its funk on a bit and, to be honest, erupts in a bit of post-rock glory. But it all quiets down in the end. Shall we? Start ‘t Geruis, Le Tombeau […]

Episode 350

2/17/2022
It may look like doing 350 episodes of a podcast is an accomplishment, but if you think about it, it’s really just seven sets of 50. So let’s not dwell on the numbers and instead just dig into the music. No spoilers, but there’s a world record on this episode. Start Hollan Holmes, […]

Episode 349

2/3/2022
Let’s start with another of those artists I downloaded and lost in the mix, only to have them pop up in shuffle to show me the error of my ways. (Trust me, there will be more…) Electronic landscapes give way to a touch of grimness as we move toward the end, but we’ll get kind […]

Episode 348

No explanation needed for this ninety-minute non-stop. Just good sounds, soft flows, and a space to spend time in.

Episode 347

1/6/2022
Coming to you live from the depths of the holding tank, it’s the first episode of 2022! We’ll open up in contemporary instrumental territory, out there on the New Age border, then slip through a narrow passage of drone and into electronic realms. Off we go! Start Raphael Groten, Care, Potential8.06 […]

Episode 346

12/23/2021
Last show of 2021. While other folks are doing their best of lists or holiday-themed shows, you and I are just going to dig into some good cuts from the library and enjoy the ride. Thanks in advance for being a great audience, and I wish you the best in the year to come! Start […]

Episode 345

12/9/2021
As you may know, I listen to virtually no music other than that which is sent along for the podcast. True story. And as I Iisten, I keep a list of tracks that catch my ear and make me want to share them with you. Well, the list was getting long so I decided it’s […]

Episode 344

11/25/2021

Episode 343

11/11/2021
Things were getting a bit dusty in the Newish queue. Some albums had been sitting there, waiting their turn, for far too long, and were probably getting a little angry that some newer releases were getting their turn ahead of them. So I decided to step in and finish out the queue. Got quite a […]

Episode 342

10/28/2021
It’s like a tale of two podcasts…we start this ride firmly in New age/contemporary instrumental territory. At the midpoint we’ll pause to fuel the engines and strap on some wings and then we’re taking off–at high velocity–to parts unknown. Start Will Ackerman, Jeff Oster & Tom Eaton, Three Trees, Brothers5.44 Bruno […]

Episode 341

10/14/2021
The math in a collaborative effort is pretty simple. Artist A + Artist B = good stuff. So for the second time (the first being over 100 episodes ago) we’re going to do an “ampersand episode” and dive into some tasty musical alchemy of two artists coming together, beginning with a much-anticipated release. Start […]

Episode 340

9/30/2021
Getting back into the groove after taking some time away to let my backlog of episodes catch up with me. We’ll kick off in uptempo territory, but trust me–this one turns into a smooth glide before the 90’s up. Enjoy. Start Brian Wenckebach, Shorty’s Rosa, A Morning, A Life4.47 Alan Elettronico, […]

Duration:06:18:13

Episode 339

9/16/2021
Let us fling wide the doors to the library and see what we can pull off the stacks. As I’ll note at the start, sometimes when you go wandering among the shelves you find things you put there a while ago and then forgot about. Let’s pretend that it’s all about the joy of discovery, […]

Episode 338

9/2/2021
I took one more listen to this episode about a week before its release and to be honest I caught myself drifting away in its deeper stretches. Don’t let the quirky start fool you–that’s just there to lull you into auditory submission so these tracks can wrap around your head and take you elsewhere for […]
