As the shadows start to stretch and the days get shorter I start to reach for a different theme of music. Not quite ‘autumnal’ and not entirely melancholy, there are just some tracks that work on these overcast days of late summer into early autumn.
There are entire albums that, for me, fit this time of year. Sometimes those albums are associated with the first time I heard them – like U2’s Achtung Baby or Bjork’s Debut. Others because they just feel or reference autumn – Neil Young’s Harvest Moon or The eponymous album from the North Sea Radio Orchestra.
I guess this selection of tracks brings together a feeling that works for an overcast day.
I hope you enjoy the playlist.
