Like a lot of people, I have a habit of associating music with the seasons. The Beastie Boys, for example, are good summer-listening music, while Dave Brubeck sounds best during the three frigid months of winter.

My favorite batch of music is what I like to refer to as “fall music.” I don’t know what it is about this music that makes it sound better during autumn, but (at least in my brain) that fact exists nonetheless.

Listed here (in no particular order) are my top ten favorite albums of fall. Some of them you’ve more than likely heard, while others might be a little more obscure. I encourage you to give all of them a listen, especially before December 21st.

If you have any of your own personal fall favorites, be sure to list them below in the comments section.

SHADY’S TOP TEN FAVORITE ALBUMS OF FALL

1. DJ Shadow “Endtroducing…”

2. Air “The Virgin Suicides: Original Motion Picture Score”

3. Moby “Play”

4. Rjd2 “Deadringer”

5. Nine Inch Nails “The Downward Spiral”

6. Radiohead “Kid A”

7. Portishead “Dummy”/”Portishead” (tie)

8. Plastikman “Consumed”

9. The Roots “Things Fall Apart”

10. Marvin Pontiac “The Legendary Marvin Pontiac”

Tricky and Tool are eleven and twelve,

…and October is my favorite month. But since moving out to Los Angeles a year ago, the overall feeling of autumn has been mostly absent. So absent, in fact, that my girlfriend and I spent hundreds of dollars and traveled thousands of miles back to the Midwest just to be able to enjoy a few days of changing colors and chilly weather.

So how awesome was it when we arrived back in Los Angeles and found the city cold, gray and rainy? Pretty awesome, especially since we hadn’t had a full day of rain in nearly ten months. I’m not kidding.

It was such a breath of fresh air that I grabbed my Flip and recorded these two quick clips:

Of course, the very next day it was back to being sunny and ninety degrees, but whatever. It was still pretty nice while it lasted.

I can stand the rain,
