Winter Music

December 22, 2011


A playlist of songs to whet the beauty and solitude of the winter season. Winter embodies such a rare starkness. The days are shorter. The air is crisper. The light is somehow different. The earth’s palette darkens. Sparse boughs creak over the soft glow of our homes. These quiet notes flit and arc like a canopy of starlight. Harnessing us into the season.

(This playlist was originally created for Kinfolk Magazine. View that post here.)
