Sonixcursions Podcast

sonixcursions podcastJoin me on the Sonixcursions Podcast for a trip through the soaring heights and murky depths of dreampop, spacerock, neo-psychedelia, shoegaze and ambient electronic… Headphones required.

My name is Ryan Anderson, music aficionado, technologist, and former editor/publisher of Masstransfer zine. I’ve been following (and contributing to) these genres for almost 25 years now and these are my favorite bands and albums.
