October is here at last, and by now you should all know what that means – A seemingly endless stream of Instagram posts with quirky, heartfelt taglines such as ‘living for beautiful fall days’ and ‘covering yourself in blankets when it’s cold’. What Tumblr user just-autumn-things doesn’t seem to have, however, is an autumn playlist – and I’m here to fix that. Also if I’m entirely honest, dear reader, I’m not just doing this for you, I’m doing this because if I’m going to keep a pep in my step walking to and from DRA every day, 8tracks isn’t going to cut it.
No Rain –Blind Melon
I thought about starting off with Radical Face’s ‘Welcome Home’ as a chilled opening song, but then I remembered how often they used to play that Nikon advert and I couldn’t stomach it.
Make A Beast Of Myself –Twin Atlantic
In case any of you were under the impression that the Scottish accent wasn’t hot.
Pacifier –Catfish And The Bottlemen
I still can’t pronounce it correctly, but huge kudos to Llandudno for bringing us these four.
Give Up –Miles Kane
The Rascals could have been great (though maybe with a more original name).
Arabella –Arctic Monkeys
Alex Turner is above reasoning.
Wires –The Neighbourhood
The YT comments section summed it up quite nicely: ‘The Neighbourhood is what you listen to on a rainy; gloomy day.’
Small Things –Ben Howard
Ben Howard is a perfect example of what makes Totnes such a cool place.
Ghostbusters –Ray Parker Jr.
WHO YA GONNA CALLL?
Relax –Frankie Goes To Hollywood
Try trudging sadly to and from DRA with this playing, I dare you.
