The Month In Music: October



Tourmaline, fog, and ochre. The night grows deeper as the year makes its final turn.

It's a month monopolized by our delight in putting on disguises, but for me, October was a period marked with honesty. Arduous but vital, I came out the other end with a sharper image of myself. Questions long avoided, finally answered----often while listening to one of these very tracks.

These are my most-played songs of October.
