We started this one with some industrial, and an industrial and EBM set themed around hunting and being on the run. It was also the night of a total lunar eclipse, so we talked a bit about that and played a set themed around the Moon. After that was a block of minor key minimal wave, with old and brand new tracks. Then we went on a quest to explore the world of dungeon synth music, and we closed with block of ambient and experimental.

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.

We started this episode, the second Half Machine Lip Moves holiday show, with some Christmas-themed industrial and EBM. Then we had a set of music inspired by Krampus, the Christmas Demon. That was followed by a doom-laden Christmas Mourning set. Then we had a mostly post-punk set themed around Winter Solstice, which was followed by another Winter Solstice-themed set of black metal and noise. The show’s last block had renditions of more somber traditional Christmas music, and we closed with a raucous bit of holiday music. We hope everyone listening has a great Christmas, Festivus, Kwanzaa, or a nice Tuesday if you celebrate none of those or something else.
