Post your favourite winter (but NOT Xmas) songs here


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)
