Fall playlist

As the scorching summer days pass, the autumn weather starts to kick in, meaning a fall playlist is in the making here are Albums to add to your playlist: 


Reading, Writing, And Arithmetic 

The Sundays (1990) 

Story continues below advertisement

In my opinion, the chef d’oeuvre of The Sundays is Reading, Writing And Arithmetic. Through Harley Wheeler’s effortless warmth of voice, and their poetic delivery, and in their music conveying thought into their already melodic tune, The Sundays present the perfect fall-like feeling. With popular songs such as, “A Certain Someone”, and “You’re Not the Only One I Know” The Sundays leave listeners with a melancholic feeling. 


Bavarian Fruit Bread 

Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions (2000) 

Hope Sandoval never fails to incorporate a dreamy-like sound to her music, as shown through her late group Mazzy Star, started by David Roback. Bavarian Fruit Bread

incorporates a quietly intense sound, flowing seamlessly. The difference between this album versus her late albums, is the more laid back and sleep inducing consistency throughout, much like how the fall makes some of us feel. A song I recommend as a starter song is Lose Me on the Way. 


Metaphorical Music 

Nujabes (2003) 

Nujabes, the late Japanese producer and pioneer for the lo-fi hip hop scene, creates the perfect jazz-infused masterpiece especially for fall. I personally love instrumental hip hop, and I think that Nujabes execution in Metaphorical Music exemplifies this, with a subtle remix to the original song sampled. My personal favorite is, The Final View, which includes Love Theme from Spartacus, by Yusef Lateef. The eclectic blend of jazz and classical eastern influences allows for a completely unique and immersive experience.
