Their self-titled debut album is full of break-up songs and therefore perfect for the fall/winter seasons. It's an album that's really grown on me, so much that I listen to it on a regular basis year-round. Looking forward to their next one.
I find I appreciate BTBAM's experimental weirdness the most during the winter. They're not for everyone, as their songs can run over 10 minutes long with all kinds of dynamic shifts, but there's just something very cold in their sound.
I can listen to Cash year-round, but I find that I want to listen to him more during colder days & nights. The American Recordings albums are especially well-suited to fall/winter since they were recorded during the last years of his life.
Jupiter and Tides of Tomorrow EP
On these releases, Cave In let go of their metal side and ventured into space-rock territory. I like these best of all their material, and the sonic textures contained within sound best in winter.
Adam Turla's vocals are reminiscent of Johnny Cash, and MBD's music largely falls on the darker, moodier side. I think they're sonically similar to The Black Heart Procession and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds.
Beyond Virtue, Beyond Vice
Take At the Drive-In and multiply them by Marilyn Manson's best songs and this is what you might get. It was the band's swan song, and every song drips with pain, sadness, and lament.
One of the saddest voices in music, period. His lyrics are often heartbreaking, and his whining moan drove the feeling home.
the giraffe's rating:
As the weather grows colder, I thought I'd make a list of bands that I have a stronger desire to listen to during the colder days & nights than any other time of year. If no specific albums are listed under an artist, that means their entire musical output falls under the theme.
