Any style or genre, just post some great songs to accompany the season and avoid all that kitschy nonsense for as long as possible. Here’s one to get you started:
The Smashing Pumpkins’ “Meladori Magpie” off of the Tonight, Tonight single. The whole thing is pure winter.
And four more classics to counter holiday music:
Modest Mouse - "Life Like Weeds"
Counting Crows - "A Long December"
Built to Spill - "Velvet Waltz"
Sigur Ros - "Untitled 8"
Recovering the Satellites and The Moon and Antarctica are the greatest winter albums ever written.
Here’s a whole mix of wintery-sounding songs I made last year for a DiS mixtape
all of vespertine really but this especially
Joni mitchell - river
Although for some reason I have had Mellon collie and the infinite sadness on a loop for weeks.
Wonderful song. The first Joni song ever recorded. What a way to start a career.
For winter I or winter II?
Shimmering wintry loveliness and secondly a Ronseal track here:
And off a generally very wintery album:
Laura Marling - Goodbye England (Covered In Snow)
