Songs for surviving 25 below temperatures: A 2013 Winter Mix

Yes, this has really happened to me.
 

I realize it's been, what, June, since this badboy has been updated? Yeah. June.

No matter.

In the past two weeks I have survived weather as low as 36-below (colder with windchill, natch) and I thought you might like to find out how I am surviving. (You didn't ask but I'm telling you anyway.) 

The answer is simple: With my winter mix.

That's right. I'm dragging out one of these again. And this time, instead of our old friend Grooveshark, I'm using Spotify because it's much easier for me.

Ignore the random ads that ruin the flow of my otherwise perfect mix.

So without further ado, here you are.

Please don't feel pity for me, I am keeping sane with metal, alt-country music (kinda) and hockey.

 

If anyone still actually reads this blog I would love to see your winter playlist. But if nobody else does and the SadBear is, indeed, dead, then you'll never see this anyway so why am I even continuing?

I'm working on one right this moment, though two of my last three mixes never made it off the drawing board. I keep finishing mixes and then deciding I hate them.

Glad you included some Deafheaven. I've seen their name thrown around a lot the last couple of days, but never sat down to explore them. People keep saying it's 'black metal made beautiful' -- so I'm skeptical.

I'll work on a playlist, too.

Bought that Deafheaven for 8 bucks at the Fargo Best Buy this summer (I know, right?). I wouldn't say they're for everyone but it's tuneful yet abrasive. Kind of what it would sound like if Explosions in the Sky or Mogwai or Slint screamed over their songs.

As a casual fan of metal, I also recommend the Deafheaven..

Cool to see Isbell in here. He's such a darling of Nashville lately. My biggest surprise was probably the Low track.

I've been an Isbell fan since he was in Drive-By Truckers but somehow didn't listen to his album until like two weeks ago. It's super-good.
