Hypnagogue Podcast 44

The last one for 2010. A selection of some of my favorite tracks from the past year--obviously just a small sampling thereof, as there has been a remarkable amount of good music coming my way. Many thanks to the listeners and the artists for keeping me going, each in their own way. Here's to a music-filled 2011.

peace & power,
John

Hypnagogue Podcast 43

Twisted skeins of sound vie for your attention in this episode's sonic surfeit. A spattering of beats and grooves converge on the verge of self-awareness. Willful manipulation of your headspace with the most benevolent of intentions, of course. Course through, look around, take notes. You may be quizzed. Remain seated until the ride comes to a complete stop. A clerical error adds a bonus track.
