Hypnagogue Podcast 56--2 Years on the Air!

The podcast is two years old! To celebrate, I've taken favorite tracks from CDs I've reviewed in the last year and lined them up into a nice flow. And if you think it was easy to pick 13 CDs out of roughly 115...

My thanks go out to my listeners and to the wonderful artists who send their music for review. Without all of you, there is no Hypnagogue Podcast. So hang on. Here we go.

Hypnagogue Podcast 55

You're mostly on your own this time. I don't show up until the end, just to to tell you what you've heard. But don't worry--the ride's smooth and easy for the most part, with just the right degree of sequencer turbulence to make things fun. A lot of new music in these 90 minutes, with fresh offerings from The Post Riot Era, Sensitive Chaos, Michael Sandler, Arcticology and more. (That's what playlists are for.) Get quiet, get ready . . . go.
