Winter music

Hello!! This post is about a beautiful thing: MUSIC! I wanted to share my favorite albums to listen to in the winter with you guys. Do you ever feel gloomy and dark in the winter? I definitely feel different in the winter than in the summer. These songs and albums as a whole really capture the atmosphere and mood of winter. To me, they are perfect to listen to during this time of year while sitting at home while it snows or driving around on a cold night. I hope you enjoy 🙂

Give Up – The Postal Service

Give Up is the only album by the amazing duo, The Postal Service. This album totally has a techno vibe and is more upbeat than the other albums on this post. Maybe it reminds me so much of winter because of all the cold nights driving around in Adam’s car listening to the songs (I just realized this statement applies to every single album on this post haha)

My favorite songs

  • “This Place is a Prison”
  • “Such Great Heights”
  • “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight”

The Moon & Antarctica – Modest Mouse

2018-01-22 11.06.47 1-01-01-01.jpeg

Modest Mouse, y’all. There’s no other band like them. This album gives cold and distant vibes. I love the eery sound effects. I pretty much know every word and guitar sound by heart (Yes, I sing guitar notes. That’s just how I roll). I once read a review about The Moon & Antartica that said its “a dark album that shines brightly” and I totally agree.

My favorite songs

  • “Gravity Rides Everything
  • “Dark Center of the Universe”
  • “3rd Planet”

Something About Airplanes – Death Cab for Cutie

↑ ignore our old, worn out copy of the album lol

Did ya think I would make a music post without including DCFC? NEVER! lol. Death Cab for Cutie is my number one band for eternity. If you’ve never heard of them, do me a favor & listen to just ONE song, if you don’t love them I’ll give you a dollar😉. Anyways, I love every album that this band has made and this is actually their first ever album. It’s crazy to think I was only 3 years old when it was released! From the first song, Something About Airplanes makes you feel sad (in a good way).

My favorite songs

  • “Drinking Champagne From a Paper Cup”
  • “Amputations”
  • “Bend to Squares”

For Emma, Forever Ago – Bon Iver

Bon Iver – Bon Iver

2018-01-22 11.34.06 1-01-01.jpeg

Every song on both of these albums is beautiful. The songs are quiet and calm. They portray love, as well as loneliness. I read that Justin Vernon (the artist behind Bon Iver) recorded For Emma, Forever Ago alone in a remote cabin in Wisconsin during the winter. Fun fact of the day!

For Emma, Forever Ago: My favorite songs

  • “Creature Fear”
  • “Re: Stacks”
  • “Lump Sum”

Bon Iver: My favorite songs

  • “Towers”
  • “Michicant”
  • “Wash.”

Parachutes – Coldplay


Lastly, Parachutes. My favorite Coldplay album by far. I think every song on this album goes really well together. I can’t even describe this album but it’s beautiful and dreamy in its own way. It reminds me of my love, Adam. That’s probably why it’s so special to me. I highly recommend giving this a listen all the way through!

My favorite songs

  • “Don’t Panic”
  • “Shiver”
  • “High Speed”

Thanks for reading!

Much love,

Calan ♥
