update my seasonal sounds!

I have a bunch of albums I like to listen to on my commute during fall and winter...but they're (/I'm) very much stuck in the aughts. What should I, an older millennial who wore a Jimmy Eat World t-shirt in her senior photos and never grew out of it, add to my list to bring it into the (gulp) 2020s?

Some criteria:
- 35-55 minutes is sort of the sweet spot, as that's the length of my commute
- gotta have that fall/winter vibe! it doesn't need to have like, lyrics about winter, but it just needs that sort of moody, season change-y vibe. a little whiny is ok
- I do want to branch out, but at the same time, I'm old and I'm not going to change my whole life, you know? Whenever I ask friends for suggestions for new music they're like, listen to Billie Eilish or Lizzo or whatever and I swear to you that I have made a good faith effort, but no. they're cooler than me, it's fine
- would like more none-dude artists broadly, though. just not those

Here's what's been in the rotation for the last 10-20 years (yikes), for reference:
- The Moon and Antarctica, Modest Mouse
- The Midnight Organ Fight, Frightened Rabbit
- Clarity, Jimmy Eat World
- Final Straw, Snow Patrol
- The Execution of All Things, Rilo Kiley
- The Autobiography of Reinhold Messner, Ben Folds Five
- Cease to Begin, Band of Horses
