Hypnagogue Podcast 26

Settle in for the ride as this episode begins with a 55-minute set that glides through the spaces between moments of conscious thought, spinning shapes from shadow and resonating with the sound light makes as it leaves a star. Tribal touches unravel to wrap spacemusic flows around the air. The journey moves uptempo gently and ends in a full-on groove to return you home to your head.

Your guides: Dino Pacifici, Human Metronome & 33 Tetragammon, Igneous Flame, Padilla/Ohms/Murphy, Numina, Mingo, Lorne David Thomson, Darren Rogers, Carl Sagan's Ghost, Alpha Wave Movement, Miguel Kertsman and Sensitive Chaos.

Enjoy, friends.

Playlist with timecodes is here. (I experimented with putting it into this post, but it looked like hell. So click on over.)

A Slight Delay

Friends: Podcast 26 will be delayed, as will my April reviews, as I'm coping with complications from a herniated disc. Haven't been able to stand or sit for the better part of a week, thus precluding much writing or recording. (Writing this one-handed while laying on my bedroom floor!)

Back soon.

Hypnagogue Podcast 25

This time through we start off dark and quiet but pointed toward the light, with work from Frore, Chad Hoefler, Deepspace, Parallel Worlds and Beyond Absence. After the break we go uptempo--and perhaps a bit to the Middle Eastern side of things--with music from Atomic Skunk, Systems Theory. Cybermonkey and Ephemeral Mists. At the end we go all quiet again with Austere, Bruno Sanfilippo and Palancar (whose release is on Dark Duck, not Dank Disk as I say in the podcast*.) This episode closes with a long excerpt from Steve Brand.

*I would have gone back in to fix this on the podcast, but the way my computer has been behaving, the time it would have taken to do so would have dwarfed the time it takes for me to type out my errata--and on the playlist, the link to the label will be correct. So no harm, no foul.

Hypnagogue Podcast 24

The ride this time starts with a long, spacey excerpt from Combs Creek Haller. From there we shift into tribal territory with Chad Kettering and Scott August. A quiet piece from Philippe Emmanuel Gueble. One more with tribal overtones from Helpling & Jenkins. The mode selector gets switched to electronic and we take off with Radium 88, Phillip Wilkerson, Aeon and Jeffrey Koepper. At the end it's Ashley & Story segueing into Steve Roach, with Darshan Ambient stepping in for the feel-good finish.
