Autumn Song Essentials

wpid-img_20150914_141043.jpgHello my wonderful followers. How are you today? I hope you’re feeling that monday motivation! If not, sit back and take a peek at this post. Even though I’m not feeling well, (the cold weather has given me a serious case of sluggishness, sneezing, tiredness and the sniffles!) today I am talking about Autumn Song Essentials. I bought the soundtrack to Flashdance on vinyl recently, which get’s me feeling fab! *dances round signing ‘maniac’ and ‘what a feeling’*. Having a few feel good tracks really does make your day turn into a great one.

I am loving this time of year. My music taste really does fluctuate with the seasons, but I thought to share some of my favourite mellow or fun tracks for September. So here goes! Please do check them out if you have not already. The tracks have links so you can listen, and the album is in the brackets! Enjoy!

As a tradition, the Robinson Family go on an adventure on New Years Day. A killer wind and drastic tides of the East Coast was our destination. After our walk on the beach, we had fish & chips with a classic cup of tea. A wander through the amusements and I had some loose change to pay for fresh donuts for the family.

Since I’ve been back at my home in South Yorkshire (I study in the West), I have been trying to do my Dissertation. Being a final year University student has been, up to this point- beyond difficult. I’ve chosen a crazy ass subject totally irrelevant to my Counselling Therapy Degree (I’m researching the definition of creativity and discussing it’s biological foundations). But I am determined to do well, so this week I am bound to my research papers.

I have found solace in some of my favourite records. If you haven’t already given any of these a listen, please go ahead and check them out!

Now, Now- Threads (check them out here!) This band hail from Minnesota and were formerly called ‘Now, Now Every Children’. This record is the perfect combination of indie rock and synth. If I could find the vinyl in stock somewhere, I’d be straight in there waving my hands around potentially fangirling.

Balance & Composure – The Things We Think We’re Missing  (check them out here!) I have loved B&C since I first started college, and their latest record is just. well. brilliance.

Lorde- Pure Heroine (check her out here!) Now, Lorde for me didn’t necessarily stand out for me on first listen, but the track Ribs’ I absolutely adore. She is so young yet creates an insane pop record.

So what records do you love at the moment?
