The spooky season may be coming to an end, but the beautiful Autumn season is still alive and well! There are only a couple more weeks until Thanksgiving, which calls for a soft and nostalgic indie folk playlist. Usually, as soon as November hits, people will begin playing Christmas music, but the Thanksgiving season is one all on its own and deserves a playlist that does it justice.
This playlist reminds me of music I would listen to walking home from school years ago on a crisp Autumn day. Although the mellow mood is maintained throughout, there is a wide variety of genres and sounds that anyone could enjoy. The playlist starts with a piano instrumental from Olafur Arnalds, then transitions into artists like Vampire Weekend, Hozier and Grizzly Bear. My favorite is “White Winter Hymnal” by Fleet Foxes, it is the perfect short little song driven by harmonies and reverb. And no Autumn playlist would be complete without classics from Bon Iver, Bright Eyes, and Death Cab for Cutie like “Skinny Love”, “First Day of My Life” and “I Will Follow You Into the Dark”. This soft and sweet playlist creates a sense of nostalgia you can’t describe, but can only feel, so grab a cup of hot apple cider and press play.
