TCR Mixtape No. 35: Fall Nostalgia

There’s a certain kind of transitional nostalgia I feel every time fall comes around. The feeling of a new school year stays with you long after you’ve finished school. And much like every season, fall has its own specific atmosphere that demands its own specific kind of music. There’s both a feeling of beginnings and endings in the air, and to me, these songs capture that ephemeral quality.

These songs have gotten me through every fall since high school, and will continue to bring me back to that memorable space. I hope you enjoy this autumnal playlist and feel some feelings of your own.
