KINDA DARK: A PLAYLIST
FOR THE CURRENT MOOD
4/3/20

The fifth episode of Devs (FX/Hulu) is framed by Free’s “Oh I Wept,” a truly inspired juxtaposition that catches the mood of right now as well as that of Alex Garland’s eerie, mesmerizing series (he’s the writer/director of the terrific films Ex Machina and Annihilation). I also copped Broken Bells’ “After the Disco” and Low’s “Congregation” from the Devs soundtrack (music supervisor: Becca Gatrell); they fit right in.

Kinda Dark mixes newly relevant songs from my most beloved bands and artists—Todd, Big Star, Matthew Sweet, The Tubes, The Odds, Radiohead—with current tracks that capture the vibe of right now, including Phantom Planet’s “Time Moves On,” JR JR’s “Good Old Days, The Strokes’ “Bad Decisions, Brent Cobb’s “The World Is Ending” and Blake Mills’ “Vanishing Twin.”

ll likelihood, I’ll keep messing with the selections and the sequence—that’s what’s so addictive about playlisting. —Bud Scoppa
