THE|DARK|OF|AUTUMN // Dreaming In Waves - Ep. 7 (a p|m|w radio mixtape)
For the seventh installment of Dreaming In Waves (previous installments here), I decided to do something that I did last year and break out a mix for the Autumn season that brings darker, more jagged and angular sounds for the longer nights. Still coming in at 120 Minutes and familiar territory (post punk, darkwave, electro shoegaze, and the more ethereal side of dream pop), this shouldn’t be too big of a leap from the usual, but it certainly leans toward darker sounds for the chillier side of the season. For those longer nights and cooler temps, these are songs (new and old) that feel more like the season, not necessarily a warm counter balance to the season. Let it soundtrack those quiet, black nights however you wish, but please enjoy the listen and support the acts that catch your attention.

Please support the artists that you find and enjoy. Buy their music, merchandise and tickets to see their shows. Supporting them is the only purpose in doing this blog. Contrary to the opinions of some, music blogs are a great way to discover new music, but there will only be so much new music to go around if these artists can’t afford to support themselves through their art and commerce. Only use these mixtapes as a guide to find something to throw your (financial and emotional) support behind.
