DB55: Dark Tones

DB presents a moody mixtape, dedicated to those who find beauty, wonder, and even solace in dark tones. Succumb to two hours of electronic and guitar-based music, with drone influence on a few of the compositions, and a fit of pique on all of them.

In this program you will hear tracks by Jacky Winter, Vessels, Joy Division, TOY, Daniel Avery, The Myrrors, Andy Weatherall, The War On Drugs, Mogwai, Liars, The Velvet Underground, Four Tet, Burial, Siouxsie & The Banshees, David Bowie, Jon Hopkins, The Darcys, Rose Windows, and Low.

As a kid in London, DB used to fall asleep at night with a transistor radio hidden under his pillow. He has been addicted to hearing new music ever since. Here, he brings that music to you. 

This is not a music show that's restricted to a particular genre, or even a specific decade, although it has an emphasis on indie rock with electronic elements or electronic music that's not simply for the dance floor. It's a 90-minute mixtape-style show that is as musically open-minded as the musical landscape is wide.
