Fall, one of my favorite seasons, consists of apple crisp, pumpkins, fall leaves, briskly weather, going back to school, hay rides, Halloween, crunching leaves when you're walking down a street, Thanksgiving, a new wardrobe, and a new playlist for fall that gets you into the season. But how dare I bring this up in the middle of summer when the last thing we want to think about is homework and colder weather? Well all the fashion houses and magazines have been getting you ready for Fall ever since March!
I have my albums and songs I like to play mainly in the summer (like Vampire Weekend, Jack Johnson, etc) not that I don't play them year round, I do, but their music is like perfectly themed for summer I think. My fall playlist is more folksy, harvesty sounding stuff (like Jon Foreman, Ryan Adams). But never have I bought an album that was entirely devoted to a seasonal playlist like Jaymay's Autumn Falllin'.
I didn't know it would fit all the requirement of what I think Autumn music should sound like when I bought this CD a few weeks ago. not only does the music have an acoustic, folksy, frolicky flair, but each song actually does have to do with the Fall season! Its perfect! It has already been on heavy rotation, yes, even in the middle of summer. If you like Regina Spektor or Katie Herzig, you will love Jaymay.
***I put some of her music on my little bear music player!
