Music Monday: Amanda Valentine’s Soft Fall

Amanda Valentine is celebrity fashion designer and Listen! It’s Vetrano contributor, regularly writing her advice column ‘#AskAmanda.’ This week Valentine steps into the driver seat of ‘LIV’ regular series Music Monday to share some of her favorite fall music. 

As a rabid, obsessive lover of music –I’d be in a metal band right now if I wasn’t a fashion designer– I give you some of my go-to fall jams.  Some of the songs are old favorites, some are new finds. This is a “drive with the windows down for a little while longer” or “turn on and do some work” or… whatever, this playlist rules!

It starts out with RJD2, a favorite of mine for decades now — if you didn’t know, now you know.  There’s so much to discover with this dude. Some of my newer finds on the list include Out Hud, Yacht, Gardens & Villa, Sonny & the Sunsets and Cloud Nothings. Some is a little dancey; some a little garage rock… all with tons of reverb and spacey vocals.

Tame Impala is a long time favorite. If you haven’t listened to their new record Currents, do it right nowMoon Duo spaces it all back out and Destroyer talks about scoring chicks. Don’t think this playlist ends weakly… 3 of my favorite tunes round out the end. You’ll have to listen to understand. Enjoy!
