The beginning of fall always brings with it a mixed bag of emotions. For those of us starting our last year of college (where did the time go?), the usual bouts of nostalgia, eagerness, self-reflection and uncertainty culminate in a flurried pursuit of the last fleeting undergrad experiences. This mix is here to help quiet the storm, best suited for an introspective day off or some time spent planting the roots to help you stay grounded. The blend of folk and old blues tunes feels otherworldly, yet somehow deeply in touch with the strong current of human experience.

This month’s mix was created by our print editor, Michael Holcomb.
