Under Eternity Blue seeks to expose listeners to a wide range of musical genres and styles. Through exploration, thematic undercurrents are revealed which expose music's own voice and its desire to universally express itself, through itself. Whether visiting old favorites, or introducing new paths, the goal is to open your ears to the subtle heartbeat which connects all music together.

Started as a side project by the author of the Grateful Dead Listening Guide, Under Eternity Blue aims to share an equal passion for music not at all Grateful Dead or "jam band," yet appealing on many similar deep levels. The project was kicked off in Spring 2009 as a featured radio show on Spirit Plants Radio, and now each show becomes a podcast episode here after its initial airing.

This blog exists to house the podcast RSS feed releases for Under Eternity Blue. Tracklists, etc... can also be found in the comments section of each post.

  1. Hi there - Love your work with the GDLG and came over here to see what other gems you have to offer us from your musical cosmos and was happy to have found this awesome podcast on Afro-Highlife. I have never heard this music before and I have to say it's wonderful stuff. I can understand why it's called "high life". It is the perfect stuff for contemplation, but is deeper than mere "chill music". Thank you again!
