September mixtape // via Spotify
I recently downloaded Spotify (I know, what have I been doing for the past five years?) and thought it would be fun to start doing monthly playlists to share some of the songs I love. Each month will feature a selection of songs that I have just discovered, have been listening to lots recently, or remind me of this time of year. I hope you enjoy these playlists and find some new bands to listen to!
September, for me, means the winding down of summer; dusky nights and sleepy mornings. Scarves are pulled out from the dark depths of chests of drawers and the air smells different before it rains. Everything is slow and a little bit sad, and there are always lots and lots of books. It always seems like it’s late at night, even when it’s not, and you’re forever looking out for the moon. Leaves start to pile up in the nooks of fences and a mighty wind rattles all the decrepit tenement windowpanes, and a mug of hot chocolate solves everything.
