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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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, […]

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 […]

You may not realize this, but it’s not always easy to write this little introductory note for each show. I mean, how many ways can I find to say, “Here’s another batch of music that really caught my ear–you have to hear it!” Because that’s what we’re doing again…hanging out to listen to the good […]

Episode 336

For this one we’re going to start with piano and end with piano, but in between we’ll visit a whole bunch of musical spots. Many flavors to enjoy, some of them dark (and delicious!). So it’s like a music sandwich with pianos instead of bread. Hungry? Dig in! Start Ronald van Deurzen, Autumn […]

Episode 335

7/22/2021
Behold, the joy of the compilation album. A mixed bag of treats, usually wrapped around a theme but sometimes not, a gaggle of musical delights to sample, an organized tangle of styles, interpretations, and inspirations. Hmm…sounds a lot like a certain podcast I know. Come on inside. Start Sam Rosenthal & Projekt Artists, […]

This one, I won’t even try to categorize. One track kicks it off, and the next grabs a thread and comes along for the ride, trailing an idea that the next track latches onto, which informs and influences the song that comes next and …You get it. We’re diving into the flow and following the […]

Episode 333

6/24/2021
Having resisted the urge to do a 3-themed show, I instead decided to kick us off with a number of tracks in the what you call your New Age kinda sorta category. Lots of piano…which I’ll mention. When the urge passes we’ll head into somewhat driftier and less piano-y zones. It’s all good, if I […]

Wrapping up year 12 with an extended episode. As always, thank you all very much for tuning in to this little hobby of mine and for putting up with my quirks and lack of genre-appropriate seriousness. Now it’s time to pour the drinks and cut some cake and get this birthday party started! Start […]

Let’s fire this one up. There’s electronic music galore, an old favorite returns (without whom this whole Hypnagogue thing might not have happened–we’ll get to that), and I crack myself up because sometimes me are not goodest with words. Why leave it in? Because we ain’t like them fancy podcasts… Start Volker Lankow, Ein […]

Who’s responsible for this flow going so deep? Well, Max Corbacho is up first so maybe that set the tone and we just, you know, went from there. Personally, I’d blame the guy who sat down and put this together. He clearly just wanted you to float for a while. A good long while. Enjoy […]

Episode 328

4/15/2021
I would say this one starts at the border of neo-classical and electronic. Plenty of acoustic influence. But you know how it goes around here…we don’t necessarily stay in one place for too long. When the beat hits, the mood shifts. Start Gregory Allison, ((iv)), ((livestream 1))15.21 Harriet Riley & Alex Garden, […]

If I may be so bold as to say so myself, this is one of those episodes that, I feel, exemplifies what makes this show different from many others. There is a range of soundworlds on display here, light and dark, sacred and secular, each unique but for subtle sonic connections that helped guide me […]
