playlist // late winter 2016

There’s a strange and wonderful balance to a cold winter morning, the heat kicking on in the bedroom, and looking for the cool spot on the pillow. If we could only find that comfort throughout these short days of winter, I’m sure Springtime wouldn’t seem so far off. So here’s to down comforters, a cool pillow, a warm cup of coffee or tea, a brilliant sunset and all of the other comforting moments that get lost as we struggle to crawl out of winter.

2 // Bloodstyle – Caroline Smith
3 // I Wanna Be Adored – The Ravonettes

mid winter 2011 // revisited

faucethead // mid winter playlist revisited

 

Welcome to the depths of winter. The oh-so familiar dropping temps and chilling commutes are here. In looking back through our playlist archives, we were reminded that winter 2011 was another season of extra bitter cold and impressive snow. The type of weather that required some serious tunes just to get out of bed in the morning. We’ve resurrected this playlist just for that very cause. While it lacks the Fight Club clips it contained in the original version, we think this has enough pep and energy to carry you through the rest of the season ahead. Make sure to turn up the volume on this one, your commute will thank you.

Tracks:
1 // Pumped Up Kicks – Foster the People
2 // Love Plus One – Haircut 100
3 // Sweet Dogs – Trolle Siebenhaar
4 // Comic Strip – Ghost of a Sabertooth Tiger
5 // Armagideon Time – Willie Williams
6 // Here I Come (Broader Than Broadway) – Barrington Levy
7 // Do What You Wanna (Mr. Scruff’s Soul Party Mix) – Ramsey Lewis
8 // The Incident At Mbuji-Mayi – Kasai All Stars & Bass Clef
9 // Mirror In The Bathroom – The Beat
10 // Common People – William Shatner & Joe Jackson
11 // How Soon is Now – the Smiths
12 // Coast of Carolina – Telekenisis
13 // Bang Bang Bang – Mark Ronson & the Business Intl.
14 // Solitude Is Bliss – Tame Impala
15 // Where is My Mind – Pixies
