Attention burgeoning lords and ladies of darkness, there's now a three-hour mixtape of all the quote-unquote goth music you've ever wanted/needed/have to reference.

Created last year by internet journal S13, it's a pretty deep dive that goes far beyond your typical The Cure/Bauhaus line-up with a wide variety of historically-relevant songs and artists encompassing everything you could loosely define as "goth," so study up and prepare to impress at your next gathering of black-clad ghouls.
