Gray Days and Gold October 2022

Hello, friends. Autumn is when Gray Days and Gold doubles down on our melancholy mood, so if you’re comforted by thoughts of how everything decays then you’re in the right place. Pull your chair up to the warm, crackling glow of our audio stream for new music from this month’s most adventurous and tuneful artists.

You can listen to this episode via the embedded player just below in this post—if you don’t see it, try turning off your ad-blocker then reloading the page—or on the Mixcloud website, via the Mixcloud mobile app, on your Sonos system, etc.

There’s also a more barebones iteration of this episode’s playlist (minus my commentary, as well as tracks missing from their library) on Spotify and Apple Music.
