It’s been a strange few weeks of weather here in Washington, with chilly breezes and seemingly endless showers signaling that Fall is officially upon us. It’s time to reluctantly toss those shorts and flip-flops in the closet in favor of sweaters and corduroys, and time to put the shimmery Summer anthems on the back burner in favor of some more subdued cold-weather melodies.
This Autumn has been marked by grey skies and constant rain. These conditions tend to throw me into an introspective mood, reflected in my music listening. Artists like The Album Leaf, Jose Gonzalez, Bon Iver, etc. get put on heavy rotation. With that in mind, I present the All Things Go Rainy Day Mixtape. The mix is a balance of old(ish) and new, with contributions from stalwarts such as Modest Mouse, The Flaming Lips, and Sufjan Stevens, in addition to tracks from newcomers No Ceremony and Coeur De Pirate. Also, what mixtape would be complete without a Frank Ocean appearance? Not a good one, that’s what.
As is tradition, you can grab the mixtape as a whole or download the individual tracks below.
