Big Star - September Gurls

September is a month without an identity. The seemingly endless possibilities of summer are over, but the rustic woodsmoke scent of autumn has yet to begin. Big Star's September Gurls captures this bittersweet feeling, like the crisp taste of an apple plucked straight from the tree. The guitars ring out like the Byrds with a bit more muscle and the sweet harmonies hint at those not-so-distant summer days. But when Alex Chilton sighs "I loved you, well never mind" it's as if he can see the oncoming deadness of winter and just might collapse from the weight of it all.
