Fall music

Fall is probably my favorite time of the year.  I love the cooler weather, the jackets, the smell of burning leaves (less of that since I moved to New Jersey).  Shorter days mean longer nights and more opportunities to get out and take long exposure photos at night.  I love Halloween and Thanksgiving.  I love hearty comfort food, stews, chili and other traditionally fall-ish foods.  And I love fall music.  There's no science about this, of course, but it's music that strikes me as indelibly autumnal.  Slow, languorous, melancholy and a bit chilly, it always puts me in a certain mood and makes any long, cool walk thorough leaf-strewn sidewalks more cinematic.  And there's no music that fits that category more than the albums that Ryuichi Sakamoto and Alva Noto produced in the aughts.
