For those who experience season changes, every month has a certain feel, which corresponds to certain albums. Fleet Foxes
, carries a January vibe, while Arcade Fire's The Suburbs
sounds great in the Fall, and Lost In Space
by Aimee Mann has been a personal favorite for November evenings since its release back in 2002. Were this phenomenon more recognized, musicians might even time releases based on the album's best listening season, in which case,Sidewalks
would make a perfect candidate for early Summer, brimming as it is with energy and potential.
