various | autumn mix
it's suddenly got chilly here, which means i can finally shed the shorts and t-shirts and start layering up. right now i'm wrapped up in a thick jumper. i like winter clothes. they remind me of long walks in the country, gloves on and breath steaming; equally long waits at bus stops in the cold; warm pubs with warm bitter; dark monday mornings struggling into work. in my curent nostalgiac frame of mind, i miss all of these things equally.
this onset of autumn requires a mix to celebrate. some bands immediately lend themselves to this topic (i'm looking at you hood and epic45). but please allow me to indulge myself by including one of my former bands in here too.
