September 22 marks the beginning of Fall, and a hallmark of the Autumn season every year for me is the music. I decided, in order to celebrate, that I would create a 15 song playlist for you all that is fall-oriented. Think: folk, bluegrass, melancholia, Elliott Smith, Mazzy Star, Dom Flemons and more. Not only that, but I will be adding to it in October and November as well, so expect 30 more songs where this came from. Happy Fall.
Without further ado, here is the first installment of “It’s Fall Y’all”:
- “Rose Parade” — Elliott Smith
- “All Waters” — Perfume Genius
- “Well-dressed” — Hop Along
- “I’m A Dream Fighting Out Of A Man” — Luke De-Sciscio
- “Oh Sarah”— Sturgill Simpson
- “Someone Else’s Trees” — Fenne Lily
- “Lonesome Old River Blues” — Dom Flemons
- “Five String Serenade” — Mazzy Star
- “Postman” — SLONK
- “Apple Tree” — Marika Hackman
- “Prove It” — Lala Lala
- “Chesapeake” — Better Oblivion Community Center
- “El Invento” — José González
- “Strange Things Will Happen” — The Radio Dept.
- “Irene” — Twin Peaks
If you love this season like I do, I encourage you to be your most unapologetic self and listen to this while walking around with your warm beverage of choice from your favorite coffee shop, observing the leaves change colors.
As always, I’ve put this list into a Spotify playlist just for you guys.
Until next time,
