Playlist: World, You Disappoint me

I love winter – for the first few months. After Christmas has packed up and left and the New Years promise dissolves into the same-old same-old it’s pleasures soon fade. I find around this time is when I reach for that breed of heaviness, of sonic density, that washes over you, envelops you, holds you close and won’t let you go. Be it the shoegazing of Blonde Redhead, the crushing beauty of Jesu or the heartbreaking slowcore of Low, when the world outside seems cold and uninviting (weatherwise or peoplewise) this is what I use to see me through until Spring.
