If you subscribe to rodent-based weather forecasting, then you know the groundhog saw his shadow and we’re in for six more weeks of winter. Here’s a compilation of songs to help get you through the last bit of cold and snow.
It includes songs about love (#9), lost love (#13), unrequited love (#2), heroism (#10), New Mexico (#8), and a Nutflake Social (#5), whatever that is — the band is British, so you might assume it’s something pithy and at least tangentially related to tea.
The mix also includes three songs from Heather Browne’s outstanding Chapel Sessions; they’re all available over at her blog, Fuel/Friends.
