A Sad Mix’s Best For Winter

like the onset of some cold glaucoma dimming over the world

This was supposed to be an autumn mix, but then it started getting a tad wintry (the music, I mean). Then I decided it needed to have some Orange Juice on it (in homage to Chris’ recent seasonal comp), and became intent on using this apocalyptic, not-at-all-indicative-of-any-solstice still from Tarkovski’s Nostalghia (’83) as the cover art. So, the mix might be thematically confused, but the music is nonetheless good. (The title comes from the Shakespeare’s underrated Troilus and Cressida.)

Download Winter From Your Lips

Once you have the file, unzip it and drag the whole folder into your preferred digital music player application. Tracklist is in the comments section. This time I struggled to make sure my sequencing wouldn’t be lost in the transfer and it seems to have worked. Enjoy!
