welcome to the new simplemuzik.net! after eight years, it's wonderful to have a new face for the podcast. this site owes it's existence to many hours of hard work patiently provided by my friend maki kayano (makisf.com), for which i'm everlastingly grateful.
in celebration of the new site, i just posted episode 412. you can listen on itunes, and/or at the "listen to the podcast" link (to the right of this post). i hope you'll visit and listen often!
links for ep 412:
music from my friend - nick guerrero
the filmmaker - woody allen

this is a late post - in support of episode 411. i apologize for the delay! unfortunately, this site suffered some recent critical malfunctions, and i've been unable to post for a bit. alas, if you're reading this, things're looking up! :) also, if you're reading this, it's entirely due to the life-saving design work done by my dear friend maki kayano (makisf.com), to whom i'm deeply in debt.
if you haven't had a chance already, i really hope you'll take a listen to episode 411. it's me with some songs, thinking about the life and work of robin williams.
links, as mentioned:
thank you for staying tuned!

i just heard about the tragic very-much-too-soon death of robin williams, and i'm stunned. quiet. there's nothing to say, obviously. i'm reminded of this. and of how fragile we are. it's important to remember.
before hearing this news, i recorded episode 410. it features a few new songs from me, and some thoughts inspired by my musical hero sinéad o'connor and her new album (which is out tomorrow!) - i'm not bossy, i'm the boss.
i hope you'll take a listen, enjoy, and visit the links below:
