Hypnagogue Podcast 68

Click into 90 minutes of quiet music that begins with, appropriately enough, something from Quiet Music. A track from the restored and reissued Steve Roach classic starts the flow and stays in a hushed state from there. This one is perfect for winding down, meditating or just drifting through the day. And I promise I won't say anything until the very end.

Hypnagogue Podcast 67

An interesting blend of things this time out. More to the point, straightforward instrumentals paired against pieces that are less structured and a little more experimental. So maybe this experiment works for you and...maybe it doesn't. Comments are always welcome.
