Transitional Dawn mixtape – singer-songwriter, folk and psych

Here’s a new mix that I put together recently. It’s mainly folk and singer-songwriter music with some occasional downer vibes and a few psychedelic moments. It contains plenty of the (for the genres) typically introspective and dreamy moods but also more uplifting and breezy tracks. For you that listen to the podcast regularly will already be familiar with several of the artists but still I hope you can find something new to enjoy.

The summer's past mixtape


Now when the podcast season is over I finally had some time to do some new mixes. With summer coming to an end and the Swedish nature has faded into autumn it's time to reflect upon the latest additions to the Archive’s library and the theme of the mix represents the main focus for the last year's vinyl hunt. The mix starts off with some dreamy late nite vibes but quickly ventures into melodic 70's singer-songwriter territory and ends up with a few more upbeat tunes. I hope you'll enjoy it!
