Winter Mix from a Year in Pop



Winter means things feel heavier. More layers of clothing, more blankets for your bed, the free-wheeling experiences of a summer collectively heaped upon the backs of its subsequent seasons.

So when I decided to follow in Jack’s footsteps and create a (short) winter mix, it was heaviness that was foremost on my mind. This isn’t to suggest that all of these songs tackle themes of any substantial weight, but they strike me as more sluggish and/or introspective than what you might find on one of my summertime mixes.

There are those winter days, though, that can get a person feeling quite light-footed. The first snow, the bluish hue of a cold and cloudy morning set against the splendor of indoor incandescent lighting. It’s a fleeting thing, but enough to instill seasonal appreciation.

Winter will always be warm in a way summer could never register.

The music I chose also represents how I approached music in 2013. It leans mostly into pop/rap music, with dollops from a regular diet of rock. Featuring music from my favorite albums of the year, it’s book-ended by Childish Gambino, who had one of the more interesting records of 2013, in my opinion.

Enjoy. And Merry Chrestmas.

If this is Childish Gambino, you should definitely check out Kendrick Lamar's "Section.80."
