New Subscriber Playlist: “Better Late Than Never, Vol. 1”

Subscribers can listen to a collection of songs that I’ve been wanting to cover in some fashion for awhile now.

I spend a lot of time writing about music. But believe it or not, Opus is not my full-time job. So as much as I’d love to spend every waking hour writing about music, movies, pop culture, etc., that’s just not in the cards right now. Which unfortunately means that, despite my best efforts, I can’t write about every single artist or album that piques my interest.

This month’s playlist — “Better Late Than Never, Vol. 1″ — is an attempt to fill in the gaps and highlight a bunch of artists and albums that I’ve really enjoyed, but sadly, have yet to adequately cover here on Opus.

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 and meaningful. In this episode, I discuss “Daglbundes,” a wintry and evocative ambient piece from Aindulmedir’s sophomore album, The Winter Scriptures.

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. (Also, if you just want to check it out, you can subscribe for free and get weekend reading recommendations.)
