The Declining Winter have an excellent new album coming out this month titled Really Early, Really Late. To mark the occasion, this month’s subscriber playlist — titled “Straight Outta West Yorkshire” — is a deep dive into the catalog of frontman Richard Adams, from his early days in Hood (one of my favorite bands) to his more recent projects.
Accompanying the playlist is the latest episode of my“Playlist Breakdown” podcast, in which I spotlight one of the playlist’s songs and why it’s so special, interesting, and/or meaningful. In this latest episode, I discuss “September Brings the Autumn Dawn” from Hood’s classic 1999 album, The Cycle of Days and Seasons.
Both of these are little bonuses for subscribers who support Opus financially. If you’d like to get access to them (and more), subscribe to Opus for $5/month or $50/year. (You can also subscribe for free and get my weekend newsletter.)
