Fall Albums (Encore Episode 136)

Encore 136

On this episode of Encore, Thomas and I break down some of their favorite “fall albums.” What makes an album a fall album? Why did we pick what we did? And what other habits do we have when the weather gets cold? We also talk a little about Yellowcard’s final show, Laura Jane Grace’s upcoming book, and our usual shenanigans. We’d love to hear from you about what albums you listen to as the weather gets cold, so hit the little quote bubble on this post to jump to the forums and discuss!


No Nets: No Nets is a rock band from Brooklyn by way of The Bronx & Jersey, made up of a few grown-up-ish punk and emo kids – and a metalhead. It’s members are a of a group of best friends that have grown together personally and musically over the last few years, and their sophomore album “Bright Light” reflects that growth, exploring themes that bounce from topics like marriage, adulting, keeping your creative life while working that nine to five, and the painful reality that you might never be able to afford that fancy piece of New York real estate you always dreamed about. On this episode we play “Dark Matter.”
