7 Essential Winter Albums

–by Quincy Tejani, Music Connoisseur

As the cold weather starts to close in on us we prepare for the season by stocking up on warm comfort foods and creating a seasonal playlist for the ages. The best winter albums can be perfect accompaniment to the cold, bleak weather or for the warmth and coziness you feel snuggling safe and warm in your house. Either way, winter-season albums help us to embrace the cold rather than fear it. That being said, here are a few albums we love to spin that help us enjoy the chilliest months just a little bit more.

Radiohead | Kid A | 2000

Bon Iver | For Emma, Forever Ago | 2007

Sigur Ros | Agaetis Byrjun | 1999

Joni Mitchell | Blue | 1971 

The xx | xx | 2009

James Blake | Overgrown | 2013

Boards of Canada | Music Has the Right to Children
