What are some of your favorite moody autumn/winter albums?

Real Estate's Days was last year's winner in my book.

Post some of your favorite albums to listen to this time of the year in here.

Nick Drake.

EDIT - More specifically, Pink Moon (Five Leaves Left and Bryter Layter aren't quite as "moody").

Who Needs Who by Dark Dark Dark. Released a few weeks ago. Excellent (winter) album.

11-01-2012, 06:39 PM
I was just thinking about this yesterday. Badly Drawn Boy's The Hour of the Bewilderbeast, and Elliott Smith's X/O were some I have fond memories of driving to college during winter and listening to.

Days has always been more of a summer album for me personally.


The National's High Violet is my go-to Autumn/Winter album.

11-01-2012, 06:46 PM
Also, Two Suns by Bat for Lashes.

Matt Pond PA - Winter Songs

Not really a fan of them, but this album is damn beautiful and really nice to listen to on a cold and dark day.

11-01-2012, 07:04 PM

Vashti Bunyan - Just Another Diamond Day

11-01-2012, 08:27 PM
Yo La Tengo - I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One
Greetings From Michigan - Sufjan Stevens
The Microphones - The Glow Pt. 2
Grizzly Bear - Yellow House

My go-to autumn/winter albums. I could curl up inside or walk around in a blustery wind to each of these and be perfectly content.

11-01-2012, 08:31 PM
Joanna Newsom - Have One on Me
Bonnie "Prince" Billy - Wolfroy Goes to Town (all of his shit's great)

11-01-2012, 08:34 PM
Wilco - A Ghost is Born
Trentemoller - Into the Great Wide Yonder

11-01-2012, 08:41 PM
Fleet Foxes self titled is something I like to listen to while trying to stay warm. That or a good majority of the Velvet Underground.

also, gonna agree with Gribbz on that. Days seemed to be a soundtrack to this past summer for me as well.

11-01-2012, 08:49 PM
Bob Dylan - The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, Blood On The Tracks

11-01-2012, 10:11 PM
Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

11-01-2012, 10:14 PM
Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

This, too.

i'm nostalgic for winters in high school when listening to this

11-02-2012, 12:27 PM
i wonder how many of these were actually released in fall or winter

11-02-2012, 12:29 PM
i wonder how many of these were actually released in fall or winterWe can have a separate thread for that.

11-02-2012, 12:30 PM
...And don't forget the summer albums thread.

11-02-2012, 12:34 PM
Trampled by Turtles - Stars and Satellites

i wonder how many of these were actually released in fall or winter

If you think about it, the songs probably weren't written the same time of year the album was released so it doesn't really matter when it was released... more when it was written and how the artist was feeling at that time.

Unwound - Leaves Turn Inside You
Sigur Ros - ( )
Bonnie "Prince" Billy - I See A Darkness

Down Rodeo
11-02-2012, 11:47 PM
Agalloch - The Mantle

11-03-2012, 01:13 AM
But basically, Unwound - Leaves Turn Inside You.

11-27-2012, 05:40 PM
I've been listening to a lot of what this thread has recommended, really good stuff.

And I forgot, this is definitely a winter album for me:


11-27-2012, 08:15 PM
This time of the year always makes me want to listen to lots of shoegazey stuff. Just these past few days I have listened to nothing but the following:
1. Slowdive - Souvlaki
2. the Jesus and Mary Chain - Psycho Candy
3. My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
4. My Bloody Valentine - Isn't Anything
5. Spacemen 3 - The Perfect Perscription

11-27-2012, 08:17 PM
Kate Bush - 50 Words for Snow deserves a mention.

The Cure's - 17 Seconds or Faith always feel appropriate in winter, too, for whatever reason.

11-27-2012, 08:28 PM
I'd say the same for a lot of the Cure.

11-27-2012, 10:27 PM
Nick Drake, the Clientele, lots of jazz and misc. folky stuff. Also, Sinatra's Only the Lonely, Kid A, any Bon Iver. A lot, really.

A Very Cee Lo Christmas

A Very Cee Lo Christmas

Fuck you.

I'll agree with whoever said Yo La Tengo - I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One for autumn. Winter always reminds me of IDM type stuff, early Autechre and Biosphere (unsurprisingly), BoC.

11-28-2012, 01:40 AM
Though it works just as well in Summer, I find Astral Weeks to be a great album in Autumn/Winter.

11-28-2012, 07:13 AM

A new year, a new autumn. Does anyone have any season-appropriate albums they'd like to add?

11-20-2013, 10:19 AM
Emperor - In the Nightside Eclipse
Immortal - Pure Holocaust
Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
Sigur Ros - ( )

11-20-2013, 10:38 AM

I like this game.

El Perro Del Mar -Love is Not Pop
Beta Band- Three EP's
Blonde Redhead- all their albums are sleeping trees and wool thigh highs to me.
Same for Pinback- but Autumn of the Seraphs for obvious reasons.
Velvet Goldmine soundtrack
Modest Mouse- The Moon and Antarctica
Bjork- Vespertine
Mount Kimbie- Cold Spring Fault Less Youth - definitely has a wintery day on a train kind of feel to it.
Air- Moon Safari
I also go back to a lot of jazz and psych along with emo-y and angsty stuff like Fugazi, Mercury Program, PJ Harvey etc.

11-21-2013, 07:02 AM
Neil Young's Harvest and Disc 2 of Decade (and obvisouly there is overlap).

11-21-2013, 02:09 PM
I have gotten into unreasonably heated arguments over the fact that Japandroids' Celebration Rock is not, as I hear a lot of people claim, a summer album, but is actually winter album. It is dripping with melancholy and the recording quality is claustrophobic, like you are in a tiny humid basement while it is cold and rainy outside.
