I’m not sure where you are right now, dear reader, but here in Montreal it’s pretty bloody cold. I consider myself a winter creature, but the wind-chill is resolved to carve off my face with an ice pick. However, to combat the frigid temperatures while walking around the city, I find that listening to icy music lends equilibrium to the season, and makes the -30 somewhat more bearable. Think of it as fighting snow with snow.
Below, you’ll find ten tracks that help ward off emotional hypothermia. Fill your travel mug with hot chocolate. Make a playlist.
Austra — Beat and the Pulse
Frigid & Plastic Bertrand — Machine!
Jessica 6 & Antony Hegarty — Prisoner of Love
