Episode 68: 12/30/2018: 2018 Year in Review Show

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with '#68' on it.

The last episode of 2018 was a review—but not necessarily a best of—looking back at some of the year’s music. We played tracks from some of the year’s industrial metal and EBM releases, along with a track from a project whose work we’re anticipating in 2019. That was followed by post-punk tracks from this year’s releases and we closed with a block of tracks from some of this year’s dark ambient releases.
