It’s the Time of the Season

I’m extremely seasonal in my listening habits. I have certain albums that I break out in the fall that I really don’t listen to much during the rest of the year. Sometimes it’s obvious where an album belongs in the year (Bon Iver is winter) and sometimes it’s not so obvious (Explosions in the Sky is a fall band to me). Anyway, I went ahead and pulled together four collections of albums organized by seasonal categories. There are plenty more that fit these categories, this is just a sampling. Take a look:

Spring
Sounds of Silence – Simon and Garfunkel
The Reluctant Graveyard – Jeremy Messersmith
Go – Jonsi
Welcome to the Welcome Wagon – The Welcome Wagon
Our Endless Numbers Days – Iron & Wine
High Violet – The National 
Baron Hollow – The Civil Wars
Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust – Sigur Ros

Summer
Surfer Girl – The Beach Boys
Pet Sounds – The Beach Boys
Fantasies – Metric
Greatest Hits – The Association
Vampire Weekend – Vampire Weekend
Revolver – The Beatles
Set Yourself on Fire – Stars
The Mirror Conspiracy – Thievery Corporation

Autumn
Bryter Layter – Nick Drake
Simple Things – Zero 7
Strange Geometry – The Clientele
Transatlanticism – Death Cab for Cutie
Parachutes – Coldplay
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot – Wilco
Pink Moon – Nick Drake
Sea Change – Beck
Five Leaves Left – Nick Drake
The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place – Explosions in the Sky
Winter
Copia – Eluvium 
Give You the Ghost – Polica
The Moon and Antarctica – Modest Mouse
O – Damien Rice
Ágætis byrjun – Sigur Ros
( ) – Sigur Ros
Englaborn – Johann Johannsson
Before the Dawn Heals Us – M83
For Emma Forever Ago – Bon Iver
In a Safe Place – The Album Leaf
Bon Iver, Bon Iver – Bon Iver


So there you go! Does anyone else find themselves in a seasonal cycle of albums? I’d love to hear what you find yourself coming back to when the leaves start to fall again.
