Have some lovely snow songs, silly!

The National – About Today
Hammock – I Can Almost See You
Lykke Li – Silver Spring (Fleetwood Mac cover)
King Creosote & John Hopkins – Bats in the Attic
Bjork – Unravel

In the vacuum between dark and light, Siouxsie Sioux and Emmylou Harris, Amelie and Travis Bickle, Huntress Thompson is an idiot lost, and reporting from the field.
