After last, Big Ass Show, Saturday one thing is clear: Summer is over. It's gone, baby. We are now in the season of reverence, thoughtfulness, self-reflection, warm beverages and too-soon festive decorations lining store shelves.
So, in the spirit of the changing leaves and chilly air I have assembled 25 songs that I think fit the season. It's probably not the cheeriest of playlists, but there is some great stuff here. Some of it you may know and some not so much. Some of the songs are new and some old. And yes, the list leans a little hipster - tis the season of scarfs, after all.
Feel free to leave some of your own suggestions in the comments.

I Wanna Be A Warhol - Lyrics I wanna be a little piece of history, let’s go I wanna be a painting for all to see, let’s go Take a trip, take a big hand full of these and swallow Just a headache, a fuzzy memory tomorrow I wanna be a Warhol hanging on your wall You down there looking up at me I wanna be a Warhol displayed on your wall Hung up there staring back at you Staring back at you Give me a taste of your misery, let’s go Won’t you please come play chemistry and sorrow I can’t believe anything that you’re telling me, let’s go The walls are closing in and melting nice and slow I wanna be a Warhol hanging on your wall You down there looking up at me I wanna be a Warhol displayed on your wall Hung up and staring back at you Staring back at you I wanna be a Warhol hanging on your wall Staring down at you I wanna be a Warhol displayed on your wall Still hung up on you (3x)
Recorded with Bill Stevenson of punk legends The Descendents and Black Flag and with Jason Livermore at the producers’ Blasting Room Studios in Colorado, My Shame Is True pushes the band into new musical terrain while embracing their classic Trio sound. The album contains 40 minutes of passionate punk-filled rock that showcases guitarist/vocalist Matt Skiba, bassist/vocalist Dan Andriano and drummer Derek Grant at their absolute best.
"We're very proud of it,” says Matt Skiba. “Once we got in the studio, the songs really took on a shape of their own.” From the album’s first melodic opener “She Lied To The FBI” to the first single, “ I Wanna Be A Warhol” the Trio waste no time setting the tone for their energetic, hook-filled, eighth studio album. For the first time ever on an Alkaline Trio record, My Shame Is True finds a guest appearance from Rise Against’s Tim Mcllarth on rousing punk rock anthem, “I , Pessimist”, while songs like “I’m Only Here to Disappoint” and album closer, “Till Death Do Is Part” remind fans of classic Trio, with stellar song-writing and catchy choruses. "It's never been about being rich or famous,” continues Skiba. “We always wanted to have the band be our career… to have that longevity… that should be the goal. We are going to do it until it stops being fun. If it ever feels like a job, why would you be involved in the arts at all? We have the right chemistry as a band and with crowds, big or small. We have community within a community.” My Shame Is True will be available for pre-order via Epitaph starting today at www.alkalinetriostore.com. The pre-order will also include a limited pressing (2,000 copies worldwide) of their Broken Wing 12'' EP with 4 songs that are not available on the standard album. In addition, 500 Limited Edition Vinyl Box sets are available and include exclusive colors of vinyl for the LP & EP, a fold out spirit board, cut wood game - piece, 46” flag, patch and shirt all in a lined wood box. As a perfect gift for vinyl fans, collectors, and Trio fanatics alike, the LP Box Set is limited edition. Alkaline Trio first emerged from Chicago in 1996 and has since released eight full length studio albums Goddamnit, Maybe I'll Catch Fire, From Here To Infirmary, Good Mourning, Crimson, Agony & Irony , 2010’s This Addiction which reached #11 on Billboard 200 and Damnesia, which features a selection of beloved fan favorites selected from the group’s extensive catalogue and presented in an intimate-semi unplugged format.
