Fall has arrived. For others it means lots of football watching and… Well I’m not sure, school. For me, it means the best portion of my wardrobe comes out, I go to coffeeshops more often, and I get a swiming pass. Largely, this annual change in behavior is an attempt to stay visible to the opposite sex. Covering oneself with a heavy blanket and grabbing a book, playing Mario Kart with your roommate, or lifting weights in the basement are all pleasurable activties, but they nix the chances of running into a likeminded, attractive woman.
I may be alone in this, but I feel like the music I listen to changes along with the seasons. I am intrigued by this. Will other people make a drastic change away from rap to jazz or something mellow and acoustic like Iron and Wine? What inspires this shift, if it’s common? Are we cueing ourselves to move to a slower pace of lifestyle for staying inside during the winter? Is it some psychological result of life around us entering hibernation? Anyway, I feel inclined to throw together a simple post with what’s currently playing in my living room/car/on my iPod.
Aphex Twin’s slower songs are as relaxing as they are beautiful:
Sheet music here.
and last but not least, Kings of Convenience.
