The days are getting shorter, the sky is getting gloomier, and the air is getting colder. That can only mean one thing – it’s fall! Whether you’re someone who loves fall or someone who needs a little help getting into the spirit, there is music to bring out the best of the autumn spirit. This post will highlight a few of our autumn favorites at Borderline to help get you into the season!
Brian’s #1 FAVORITE fall band is The Neighbourhood. The dark tones contrasting the fast beats with the singer’s soft, whiney voice droning over the songs makes it the absolute perfect band to listen to on a rainy fall day. Look no further than their first single, “Sweater Weather.” The title is telling enough. Both of The Neighbourhood’s full length albums are available on vinyl at Borderline.
Another Borderline favorite for fall is MADONNA – Chilled, vol 1 & 2! Listen to Madonna in a whole new way with these gorgeous, stripped down versions of her greatest hits! “Beautiful Stranger” features only ambient vocals and a single organ while “Ray Of Light” has full band instruments and almost feels like smooth jazz. The best part of this series is that it features ALL MADONNA’S ACTUAL VOCALS! That’s right, these aren’t covers. They’re chill remixes that couldn’t be any COOLER! Play this CD on a cold morning with a cup of coffee, or in the background of an evening with some friends over and a bottle of wine. BOTH volumes are available through our ONLINE store! Just click HERE!!
Have you ever had that moment when you’re sitting in a cab or a bus while it’s raining, you’re looking out the window, and the music matches the moment perfectly so you feel like you’re in a music video? (Or that one scene from Lindsey Lohan’s remake of The Parent Trap?) So have we. The perfect album for that moment – Strange Little Birds by the band Garbage. We know you’ve heard Garbage before, and this 2016 album is possibly their best. A little softer than some of their past releases, but still packing a nice punch. CD and Vinyl available in store, CD available online! Click HERE!
Finally, the kings of fall weather music – My Chemical Romance. TWO of their albums were re-released this month. Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge was included in the Ten Bands, One Cause charity fundraiser for which ten albums are reissued on PINK VINYL with the proceeds benefitting breast cancer patients and their caretakers. Also released this month – The Black Parade/Living With Ghosts 10th anniversary LP Vinyl Box Set! Both of these are available in store and sound PERFECT on vinyl. Great for a dark fall night as Halloween approaches.
