Autumn Music

Last sunday we all turned back the clock one hour and suddenly you get a change of mood. It gets colder, darker and perhaps more lazy. No, come to think of it, I was lazy all the time...

Still, the change is here but it's not all bad because this is the time of year when I rediscover the beautiful music styles in the form of sadcore or melancolica... well, introvert stuff. So instead of whining over the summer that's gone, greet this dark season by listening to this eclectic sample of some of sadcore rock's finest:

  • Red House Painters - "Have You Forgotten"
  • Red House Painters - "Song For Blue Guitar"
  • Iron and Wine - "Such Great Heights" (The Postal Service cover)
  • Bonnie 'Prince' Billy & Matt Sweeney - "Beast For Thee"
  • Okkervil River - "For Real"
  • Spiritualized - "Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space"
  • Mark Kozelek - "Bad Boy Boogie" (AC/DC cover)
  • Spokane - "The Absentee"
  • Elbow - "Newborn"

  • And as a bonus: mad Welshmen playing gorgeous mellow country rock with an electronic twist:
  • Super Furry Animals - "Run! Christian, Run!"

    Thank You for posting the original 'Have You Forgotten' track! After lots of searching I still only came up with the Vanilla Sky version which, although nice, isn't half as lovely as Kozelek & his guitar all sparse n' melancholy-like. Cheers!
