Chilly Fall Mixtape Project: One and Two
Fall is really cool. Especially pumpkins and scarves.
It's that time again! I haven't done a mixtape project in a while, I don't think, and I decided I wanted to start one up again because I really enjoy doing them. Unlike the majority of other posts directed towards basically what's new and good, these give me a chance to revisit songs that I may not have listened to in a while, or songs that I just really love.
As you can see, this new mixtape project is focused on the Fall season, which is incidentally my very favorite season of all. Now, this is not going to be full up of songs with the words leaves and scarves in the titles, but more along the lines of songs that I, and hopefully you, associate with Fall and all the wonderful feelings it brings along with it. Well, let's dive right in.
1. [MP3]: Pants Yell! :: Our Turf
You rarely find a pop that can right an instrumental song and pull it off, let alone do it so well that it turns out to be one the best songs on their album, but that, among other things, is why Pants Yell! is so special. Also unlike most of the instrumental music I typically listen to, "Our Turf" is niether a.) long or b.) loud, it moves along at steady pace, never changing really, but there's something about it that just puts a smile on your face and kind of makes you forget about everything else going on around you.
2. [MP3]: Monster Movie :: Vanishing Act
This song, somewhat like the song above, makes me me feel very "at peace," which as I doubt anyone will argue, is a really great feeling. Be it the the strings, the acoustic guitar or the almost whispered Low-esque vocals this song is very warming. The somber lyrics also add to the dispiriting imagery that song already conveys musically: "Nobody knows me, it's how I wanna be / It's just a plan which no one believes / I'm not ready for this, I wont ever be."
