It’s autumn. Falling leaves brush guitar strings as some hippy sings about his bursting heart. twank twank twank. OH GAWD I CAN HAS EMOTIONS. Good for you!(?). It starts to rain and the wind turns cold. Cloud grey, dying leaf yellow, deadleaf rot brown. Misery, hope and ennui. Together in this slow dance of tired metaphors (<-- laaaame). AKA. Autumn birthed folk music and that mmm deep feeling of suspended nostalgia and disembodied sadness.
