Another month, another playlist. For November I chose mostly acoustic tracks that encompass the feelings of the start of winter and that are very nostalgic for me. Listen to it at the bottom of this post.
Alexi Murdoch – Through the Dark
I discovered Alexi Murdoch’s music through the movie Away We Go about 7 years ago. I listen to his music whenever I need to relax: a calm start to my morning or a to get a relaxing mood flowing at night after a stressful day of work.
Brand New – Could Never Be Heaven
I finally listened to Brand New’s album from 2017, and I hate that I didn’t check it out sooner. Deja Entendu is one of my favorite albums; listening to Brand New brings back a lot of fond memories and nostalgia. I was hesitant to listen to it for some unknown reason, but I finally did and it’s great.
Jack Johnson – Belle
This song brings me back to high school, sitting in my room trying to learn it on guitar. I never got it down, but I may revisit it again soon.
Kings of Convenience – Leaning Against the Wall
Another relaxing acoustic album. I highly recommend checking this whole album out on a lazy Sunday, but this song is one of my favorites on that album.
Say Hi – My Eyes Won’t Weep No More
I listened to Say Hi a lot in high school, but I recently bought a Say Hi CD at a thrift store in Austin for $1.99. I’ve been hooked again since and it’s all I’ve been playing in the car (to DJ’s annoyance). To me, his voice is so relaxing and his music’s a masterpiece.
Thao and Mirah – Teeth
Another oldie for me from high school, this duo collaborated and created a beautiful indie rock album that I cannot listen to enough.
Vagabon – Alive and a Well
It seems I always have at least one Spotify recommendation each playlist. I was recommended this while making this playlist, and I’ve found one of my new favorite bands. I’ve listened to this album almost every morning before I go into work the past few days.
Bon Iver – Beach Baby
How could I not add Bon Iver to an autumn inspired playlist?
Badly Drawn Boy – Camping Next to Water
I’ve only listened to his first album, The Hour of Bewilderbeast, but I plan on listening to all of his albums soon, especially after revisiting this one.
Radiohead – Gagging Order
My all-time favorite band. Their acoustic pieces always leave me mesmerized. Gagging Order and Faust Arp are my two favorite acoustic pieces by them, but I chose Gagging Order because I thought it was a nice closing song for this list.
Thank you to everyone who has listened to and followed my playlists these past few months. I love making them. ♡
