Snowbound Sounds

Photo by Bleech 

Yes it's a re-up as they say, but with good reason - I haven't had a chance to whisk together some new winter-drifters and fireside warmers yet- a playlist that would include Neu!, Ulrich Schnauss and Jon Hopkins - so whether your cosy-toes and tucked up in your pit, or like me, some poor gump schleping your way to work  (late start, early finish I reck') lend a reflective and frozen ear to this mix of frosty know where to find the T-list.

Last Of The Winter Mixtures

Soundhog's booty of Brandy & Monica meet The Doves is a thing of such slow shifting pure beauty it really does deserve a solo posting..

I do like this mix - it's perfectly wintery. And that Soundhog track IS great. I've played it 3 times this morning!

Mondo said...

Try this too for more of the same A Day In Tracy's Life very winter-trippy..

Taken from the Soundhog - album Historia De La Musica Rock, which seems to be offline now. Cover looks like this though

As comforting as the hot chocolate with rum I had about an hour ago, but less likely to send me straight to sleep. Cheers, buddy.

PS - the Soundhog track got a bit sullied for me as it kept cropping up in a 'Body Balance' class I go to sometimes. When you've abandoned all dignity and stood in a wobbly 'dancer pose' to something, it just changes how you relate to it...

Mondo said...

Rum and choco mmmm. I'm on a cognac buzz at the mo'

Also try these two albums for more soothing snow tunes

PS wobbly 'dancer pose'. Are there pic's on facebook.
