This is gorgeous and 100% setting the tone for my autumn...
Reminds me of albums I loved in the early aughts like His Name is Alive's Stars on E.S.P. and Black Box Recorder's England Made Me, both of which remind me of long autumnal road trips in Wisconsin as a teenager. Definitely a beautiful and reflective space to be encompassed by while watching the world shift.
THE PAIN GOES...
