Illusions of Autumn

Illusions of Autumn

I wanted to get this mix in while it is still autumn. I originally did this mix last fall for the good folks over at Headphone Commute.

The music in the mix sort of has an autumnal feel to it, at least I hope so considering the title is “Illusions of Autumn.” Not sure what qualifies a tune as being autumnal, I guess it’s a case of “I know it, when I hear it.”

Nils Frahm - Old Thought
Cliff Martinez - Rubber Head
B.Pioulard - Malick
D.Lanois - Matador
King Creosote & Jon Hopkins - First Watch
H.Budd - Come Back to Me in Dreams
Arve Henriksen - Sorrow and It's Opposite
S.Tibbetts - Nine Doors Breathing Space
A.Henriksen - Sorrow & It's Opposite
A.Kiritchenko - Agravic Illusion
Animal Hospital - Nostalgia
Fun Years - Fucking Milwaukee's...
Bexar Bexar - n.r.o.t.
Lanois - Sketches
Antonymnes - A Feeling
Maps & Diagrams - When the night came
Errante - counterclockwise
C.Martinez - Wrong Floor



When I think of autumnal music, I think of things that feel a bit more melancholic and rootsy to go along with the shortening days and changing leaves. That's when I listen to a lot of Windham Hill music, especially George Winston and Will Ackerman. Vince Guaraldi also lands here. I think of lonely ocean waves and the wind kicking up--like in Wendy Carlos' "Fall" from Sonic Seasonings.
