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…

VINTAGE RT: DEPECHE MODE!

On September 6, 2013 I saw Depeche Mode play at Barclays Center, and it was an incredible show. The gorgeous video art, Dave twirling across the stage in his leather harnesses, Martin singing an acoustic version of “But Not Tonight,” the songs they played throughout the show, the sound…I was overwhelmed. Here’s a playlist I made a year prior, in Fall 2012, in honor of one of the greatest bands of all time, followed by the set list from the show.

VINTAGE RT: AUTUMN EQUINOX

After a long hiatus while I moved across the country and settled in, retrotransmission is back! On the eve of the Autumn Equinox, and in celebration of the dropping mercury, I felt it appropriate to post one of my many fall playlists. This one comes from Fall 2012 and features a lot of bands I listen to when it gets cooler out: Front 242, Psychic TV, The Tear Garden, Skinny Puppy, Love and Rockets, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Tones on Tail, 6 Comm, Depeche Mode, Swans, The Legendary Pink Dots, The Creatures, Joy Division, Dead Can Dance, Clan of Xymox, and more. I hope this gets you in the mood for the greatest season there is.

VINTAGE RT: DIRTY BLACK SUMMER

Today I’m posting one of my favorite retrotransmissions of all time: The Black Show. This show, from spring 2013, features rock n roll, goth, punk, and post punk bands paying homage to black. Summer goth reigns.

Tonight was my final retrotransmission on rainydawg radio, and it was emotional for me. I hate goodbyes, so I wanted to end on a high note with a nonstop dance party, the kind where music blasts from a righteous sound system at top volume and people can’t get off the dance floor. Postpunk, pop, goth (I had to represent the goth stomp!), industrial dance, and electro kept it strong all night, and I sent retrotransmission off in style.  I hope to be broadcasting live from the radio again soon…stay tuned. But until then, keep checking this blog every Monday for new and vintage retrotransmission playlists!
