Friday Mixtape! 


Bend may still be experiencing days with high temperatures in the eighties, but there is clearly a softening of the air and crisp mornings are the now norm as autumn begins to peek through on the High Desert.

As such, this Friday Mixtape is full of mood setting music for that transition.

One of the best fall/winter albums of all time is the self-titled 2009 debut of singer/songwriter and pianist Laura Groves, who recorded as Blue Roses but has since switched to using her own name. Her chilling track “Greatest Thoughts” is the perfect tune for a dark autumn evening.

The playlist also hosts string folk from Portland’s Horse Feathers via their song “Like Lavender” from their 2006 debut album Words are Dead as well as a brand new vintage rock track from Avi Buffalo.

The back-to-back tracks from avant garde jazz group Balmorhea that round out the mixtape are really meant to be an inspiring glimpse into their catalogue; since every single one of their albums captures the allure of sweet smelling fall air, warm bowls of soup and scented candles.
