I made a fall mix entitled It's All Your (Fall)t. I had a lot of ideas concept wise, but I think that it mostly ended up a "how the trees would feel if they were consciously aware of the fact that they're losing all their leaves and then subsequently realized that they would come back to them in the spring." Anna's
mix, conveniently called It's All Your (Fall)t Vol. 2 is more of a read a book, drink some coco and sit by the cozy fireside. Enjoy.

005; Don't Sleep

I would consider myself an average fan of The Kooks. I enjoy most of their music but if they released a new album I would not be the first person in line at the record store, I wouldn’t be the one searching for it online, determined to find the deluxe edition. That being said, there are two songs by The Kooks that I will always love: Sway and Love It All. They’re both from their most recent album, Konk, and they both make me relive the excitement and nervousness that was the first few weeks of living in the dorms my freshman year of college, but before classes started.

I planned on posting about these songs about a month ago, but school started and everything sort of snowballed from there. But enjoy these songs and maybe think about your first few weeks in college.
