Music from the end of the world.

Midnight Looms 037 – NEW YEARS REQUEST LINE – JANUARY 5 2021

Happy New Year! On our PREVIOUS EPISODE, our host, GOBS, got to say his piece on the music of 2020, so tonight, we wanted to open up the REQUEST LINE and play YOUR favourite tunes. The resulting JOURNEY-BY-DJ is one wildly eclectic set of songs. The only things they all share in common is that they were released in the past 365 and someone thought they were phenomenal.

Considering the randomness of the selecting, it’s amazing how well this episode flows. It’s got NEW MUSIC from BADBADNOTGOOD & MF DOOM, CANCER BATS, DORIAN ELECTRA, GORILLAZ ft BECK, JOHNNY NOCASH AND THE CELTIC OUTLAWS, MUSTAFA, NINJA SEX PARTY, TOUCHE AMORE, THE WHITE SWAN, and even ANDREA BOCELLI! Whaaaaat?! You’ll also hear some of the best tunes of the past year, from the likes of ASHNIKKO, COOKIE KAWAII, FIONA APPLE, GLASS ANIMALS, MELKBELLY, PERFUME GENIUS, PURITY RING, and TAME IMPALA. Almost every song is selected by a member from our GROWING COMMUNITY OF LATE-NIGHT MUSIC LOVERS.

Gobs also calls up the NUMBER ONE FAN of our former guests, HOT LIPS, and announces the rather EPIC guests and themes we’ve got planned for our remaining JANUARY broadcasts. Clearly, this little music podcast shows no signs of slowing down in 2021. We only do it BIG around here!

We want to know what you want to hear, so SEND IN YOUR REQUESTS! or hit us up on our SOCIALS.
