Episode 58: 10/14/2018

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with '#58' on it.

We started this episode with a block of songs from new and upcoming releases. Things took a turn and went into a weird haunted off-kilter lo-fi direction, starting with no wave and atonal folk and then going into warped and haunted versions of more popular music. After that we went into experimental audio collages and took a brief look at the world of numbers stations, which was followed by phantasmal noise and ambient.
