I wanted to compile something for my friends to engage the frosty winter drives and embrace the huddled indoor times of cool resistance; to see your breath and remember and relearn and reiterate the rituals of snow. Here it is!
The majority of these songs are not new by any stretch of the infinite-blog-frontier’s measurements, nor are any of these songs too obscure for the average music fan/connoisseur/snob, but their combination makes for a lovely Winter mix that I had compiled for you all about a month ago but been too busy to finish uploading.
Also, note the local love for my boy Jim (Jom Comyn) who’s entire catalogue is, for me, reminiscent of winters in Edmonton.
I hope this pantheon of winter gems will guide you into the warm arms of your loved ones again and again.
