Departure lounge ramblings on music, places, climate change and stuff outdoors

If you’re feeling glum

In markontour’s view music is essential to life at all times, but it is especially in the dark hours of defeat and disappointment that a great tune really makes the difference. And so as I fly away from the prospect of another five years of deepening inequality and division back home, I have been searching for those songs that speak to my currently despondent mood, and might also start the process of renewed fight for a better future. Here follows my personal General Election Blues compilation, also available on Spotify.

  • Nice Day for a Sulk – Belle and Sebastian
  • Coming Second – Elbow

  • Depreston – Courtney Barnett
