Hypnagogue Podcast 48

I had already put about 35 minutes of music into this podcast's flow when I read about the passing of musician Lucette Bourdin. A lot of ambient podcasters, broadcasters and streamers have dedicated shows to her and her excellent music--some as long as 4 or 5 hours! Me, I decided to keep the flow I'd already laid down and then add a short stretch of Lucette's wonderful creations as a tribute. I highly recommend you search out her music if you're not familiar with it. And I say that fully recognizing the irony of the recommendation coming after she's left us. You will, however, be richly rewarded as a listener when you go find her work.

We begin with beats, switch over to Lucette's memory, and finish quietly.

Hypnagogue Podcast 47

This New England winter has put a beating on me. Between oppressive snow and damage to Hypnagogue HQ (aka: My House) from ice dams, your host has grown weary. What this means for you is that you get to ease on in and completely (ahem) chill with Lazy Podcast #2. Long, quiet tracks perfect for staring blankly out into a snow-slammed landscape. If you happen to live in one. Otherwise, just enjoy!
