Well, I'm not sure what kind of mood I was in when I compiled the playlist for AI19, but I must've been affected by the terrible summer; summer: is that really an appropriate word for what Cornwall has just experienced? Whatever the cause, be it climatic or otherwise, this week's show features music that is, on whole, preoccupied with despondency of some kind or another. Naturally, this being Analogue Island, the mood is modulated enough to allow for one or two tunes that might perk you up. But these apparent upbeat moments are only relative.
Having said all that, you can be assured that AI 19 is no damp squib: all the music is superb, whether it be wistful or darkly sinister. I hope you can listen.
