5 tracks for October

1. Spring / Sun / Winter / Dread by Everything Everything [silly grown-up-melancholy indie]

Spring, sun, winter, dread
I don’t want to get older
(No way, no way)

2. Plein Soleil by World’s End Girlfriend [cinematic post rock]

Sounds like: Japanese post rock somewhere between Pan’s Labyrinth and Final Fantasy X

3. Amused by Hunger

I keep listening to the excellent soundtrack of netflix’s “13 Reasons Why”. The series really touched me and I love the way the soundtrack transports me back to all the intense emotions of being a teen.

4. Caves by Haux [indie/electronic duet on waves of forlorn melancholia]

Take your last supply
To leave this home behind
(Leave it all behind)

5. Kodama by Alcest [post-black / shoegaze metal]

I absolutely love this piece (the chorus around 4:10! I can hardly believe it!). After Alcest’s last album, the absolutely ethereal dreamy Shelter, I really appreciate their return to a more post-black metal sound; especially the alternation between singer Neige’s mellow floating voice and his harsher vocals, for instance on Eclosion. Especially during the past few weeks of preparing a presentation on my master’s thesis project, Alcest’s music has helped me through some intense negative feelings, turning rather undirected anger into energy.
