Monday Mix: Falling

For all the ways we fall.

"Things fall apart/Sometimes right from the start." While on a simultaneous TacocaT binge and making MP shirts for tour, I started thinking about all the ways there are to fall. We fall apart. We fall in love. We fall out of love. We fall into new opportunities and experiences. With the season quite literally being fall, I knew I wanted to make a mix this week around this theme.

While driving through Vermont this past weekend, my bandmate Thanasi and I were talking about how suddenly fall has come for us. In NYC, we had no idea that leaves had already changed and that Halloween decorations were all up on the country homes. Walking around on crunchy fallen leaves and drinking apple cider, in awe of how beautiful the country can be as soon as you leave NYC. Mostly though in awe of ourselves: that tour is happening now and there is nowhere to go but to completely fall into it.
