Playlist Nation: Sweater Weather & Pumpkin Spice

You know that perfect time of year that only seems to exist for a fraction of a second?

Where the leaves are colorful and crunchy, where jeans and light jackets are welcomed. Coffee tastes better, and summer love becomes autumn romance. Listen to this on your way to class on the brisk afternoons and on the weekends as you work around the house or dorm while the smell of fall is coming through your slightly opened windows.

This mix of indie rock and pop music captures the sense of fall with warm sounds and soft melodies. Pianos, violins, acoustic sessions, and occasion dance worthy number help build variety without ever losing sense of the autumn vibe.
