Music for colder temps

Sort by: Showing 39 items
Rating: List Type:
Secrets of Elena's Tomb EP
A short collection of very mellow songs...sounds like the aftermath of a great party, where everyone's exhausted/hungover and trying to recover.

Worlds Apart
A great album any time of the year, but I find myself reaching for it more often during the fall for some reason.

So Divided
All the songs on this album have a common theme of loss, regret, and a lament for better times. If that's not wintry, I don't know what is.

Average listal rating (164 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 0
AFI
Sing the Sorrow
The pinnacle of AFI's goth-punk output, this one's perfect for fall especially.
the giraffe's rating:
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.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (355 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 0
Tidal and When the Pawn...
Miz Apple's deep, breathy vocals match the colder weather perfectly, and the break-up songs and bluesy melodies on these 2 albums are well-suited for fall/winter.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (90 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 0
The godfathers of goth are definitely a band to listen to when it gets cold out. Pick any album and you're set.
the giraffe's rating:
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.
the giraffe's rating:
So many break-up songs, and the majority of their music is very dark and moody.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (716 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 0
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.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (240 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 0
Chan Marshall's voice and her bluesier songs have kept me warm on many cold nights.
the giraffe's rating:
Another band that's great year-round, but I listen to them more often when it's colder out.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (10 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 0
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.

Average listal rating (12 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 0
Walking With Thee
Evidence:
the giraffe's rating:
Bluesy rock perfectly suited for colder weather. Both of their albums are pure perfection, so you can't go wrong with either one.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (552 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 0
This should require no explanations.

Average listal rating (176 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 0
White Pony
I listen to this a LOT to keep me warm when I need it. It's such a weird, dark album and the best they've ever recorded.
the giraffe's rating:
Again, goth-ish bands simply sound better this time of year.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (89 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 0
So many bluesy, heartbreaking songs to choose from, all turned into beautiful melodies. E's voice sounds like autumn.
the giraffe's rating:
St. Elsewhere
Lots of darkness in this album, and Cee-Lo's vocals are full of sadness.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (565 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 0
Still haven't got into Plastic Beach, but their other albums are definitely dark and mellow enough for wintry times and colder climes.
the giraffe's rating:
Dark, depressing, goth-ish, and Ian Curtis's deep haunting vocals add to it all.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (15 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 0
Another year-round favorite, but I listen to them the most when it gets cold out. I especially recommend They Were Wrong, So We Drowned.
the giraffe's rating:
Ugly is full of pain, regret, and misery. Keith Caputo's deep dark vocals fit in among much of this list.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (10 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 0
B] Life
Break-up songs, lots of darkness

Catch for Us the Foxes
The whole album plays like an autumn day
the giraffe's rating:
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.
the giraffe's rating:
The Fragile, Still, and Ghosts I-IV
...all of which have the bulk of NIN's instrumental output, which is perfect mood music for colder weather.
the giraffe's rating:
Dark, moody, atmospheric
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (458 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0
Also dark, moody, atmospheric. I rarely listen to Placebo when it's not cold out.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (1 ratings) 10 IMDB Rating 0
Sonically similar to Placebo, with enough use of feedback to make Jesus & Mary Chain proud.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (232 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 0
This one should require no explanation as well.
the giraffe's rating:
Dark, goth-ish, etc.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (49 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 0
SP's sound is all about being cold.
the giraffe's rating:
They're simply too dark and weird to suit any other time of year.
the giraffe's rating:
Industrial-ish band whose albums were full of break-up songs. I recommend any of them except their self-titled release, which is complete crap.
the giraffe's rating:
There's a member of Skinny Puppy involved, which should partially explain it. All their songs are very dark.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (27 ratings) 5 IMDB Rating 0
Full Collapse and War All the Time
Their best albums, which are great any time of year but sound even better on cold days.
the giraffe's rating:
Dark, goth-ish, depressing lyrics...perfect for fall or winter.

I listen to their song "Red Water (Christmas Mourning)" every December 25th.
the giraffe's rating:
Average listal rating (1 ratings) 10 IMDB Rating 0
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.
the giraffe's rating:
Blues blues blues
the giraffe's rating:
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.
