RoundTable - Week 3

This week's question -

"What is your ultimate winter mix?"


Clearly the ultimate winter song is the Fleet Foxes classic "White Winter Hymnal." Just kidding.

But rather than a playlist, I'm just going to suggest a few albums:
*Plaid - Double Figure
*Autechre - Amber
*Unwound - Leaves Turn Inside You


When I think of Winter, I don't usually think of the holiday season, as much as I think of the cold. To keep myself warm, I like to wear this wonderful winter wig.

1) Fleet Foxes - White Winter Hymnal
6) Mates of State - Starman (cover)

*Also - I put Fleet Foxes because I know Max Nova hates them.


These songs are absolutely freezing. That is to say, I often get cold listening to this music. They just seem to make more sense when listened to while walking in the snow.

1. Matthew Good-Last of the Ghetto Astronauts
2. Bruce Springsteen-Atlantic City
3. Frightened Rabbit-Keep Yourself Warm
4. Notorious B.I.G-You're Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You)
5. Okkervil River-Plus Ones
6. The Hold Steady-Stuck Between Stations
7. Fiona Apple-Pale September
8. Hem-Half Acre
9. Matthew Good-A Single Explosion
10. Frightened Rabbit-Fast Blood
11.Rocky Votolato-The Light and the Sound
12. Goo Goo Dolls-Naked
13. Twilight Singers-Follow You Down


I think it's no surprise that a good number of my favorite winter tunes come from bands hailing from the Great White North. Emphasis on great.

1. Fleet Foxes – White Winter Hymnal
2. Frightened Rabbit – Keep Yourself Warm
3. Brand New – Seventy Times 7
4. Mother Mother – O My Heart
5. Mother Mother - Hayloft
6. Tokyo Police Club – Tesselate
7. AFI – Love Like Winter
8. Deathcab for Cutie – We Looked Like Giants
9. The Dismemberment Plan – Spider in the Snow
10. Interpol - PDA
11. TV on the Radio – Wolf Like Me
12. The Stills – Love and Death
13. The Dears – Crisis 1 and 2
14. Boxer The Horse – Lenny was a Moonshiner
15. The Decemberists – The Engine Driver
16. Kenna - Hellbent
17. Okkervil River – Calling and Not Calling My Ex

I honestly couldn't come up with anything for this question, but there was that Bloc Party song that goes, "it's so cooooold in this. house."

That song would be number one on my playlist if I had one.
