Autumn Playlist Part 2: Songs for Apple Picking

The leaves are starting to go brown and will soon fall to the ground. Apples are about to ripen and become pies. Short shorts are going to be big wooly sweaters. Festival season is ending and bands will be out on the road promoting new albums. All signs point that summer is ending and autumn is coming up. I am super excited for the seasonal change this year, I mean who doesn’t look good in a fall palate amirite? These are a few bits of music inspiration to get you oh so excited for pumpkins, turkey, and some crisper air.
