VINTAGE RT: FALL MIX

image1-8

Its finally fall!! Fall is my favorite time of year, and it always inspires me to make a lot of playlists. A lot of the music I love, which you can hear on this mix, is evocative of cool, crisp weather, heavy grey skies, and turning leaves. Listen live today 9/9, 4-6EST , on 8ball radio, or catch it later on my show archive. Moody punk, postpunk, and goth tracks from Joy Division, Love and Rockets, Public Image Ltd., The Wake, The Chameleons, Leonard Cohen, Current 93, Wire, The Legendary Pink Dots, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bauhaus, Sonic Youth, Dead Can Dance, Nico, Kate Bush, The Tear Garden, Swans, Lush, Chris & Cosey, Cocteau Twins, The Cure, The Fall, Echo & the Bunneymen, Clan of Xymox, and more.

Well hello, strangers. This vintage retrotransmission mix, a dreamy, mellow and hypnotic one from fall 2012, is perfect for the winter solstice, which is upon us this very night. This is full of everything I like to listen to when the winter really begins to come down and we’re shrouded in sudden darkness: Death in June, Cocteau Twins, Current 93, Nico, Angels of Light, Psychic TV, Swans, Kate Bush, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Joy Division, Tear Garden, The Legendary Pink Dots, Sisters of Mercy, Clan of Xymox, Depeche Mode, etc. Listen on repeat and hibernate until the crocus appears from the frost…

This set list from several years ago, which I called “Retrotransmission for Retrotransmission” featured some of the punk and postpunk artists that inspired this radio show in the first place! Lots of the tracks on here were included on my original try-out set list that I presented to rainydawg radio. They told me my inclusion of Guided By Voices’ “Hot Freaks” sealed the deal.
