Gray Days and Gold - April 2021

The music of the spheres is heard distinctly over the vaccination site. It is…

Hello, friends. As a greater percentage of the populace is vaccinated, it’s time to cautiously consider emerging from hibernation and interacting with others in whatever manner you consensually see fit. Should you desire a little Euterpean accompaniment as over and over you flatten the clover, you’re in luck: Gray Days and Gold is back with another hour of the best music that April 2021 has to offer… as always, meeting (or exceeding) our ‘M4’ pledge: maximum melody, moderate melancholy.

You can listen by clicking one of the links below, or on the Mixcloud website, via the Mixcloud mobile app, on your Sonos system, etc.

And for those who prefer Spotify, there’s a more barebones iteration of this episode’s playlist there (minus my commentary, as well as some songs that are missing from Spotify’s library).

If you like what you hear, please consider supporting the artists via the BUY links. (The next Bandcamp Friday occurs on May 7, btw.)
