Don’t forget to listen along with the Strong Odors playlist——>
Winter is long in northern Michigan.
It starts snowing around Thanksgiving and doesn’t stop until after Christmas.
This is followed by another 31/2 months of sub-zero temps, wind-chill factors, and of course more snow.
(usually in the form of 20-inch dumps)
It’s usually safe to put the shovels and boots away once May rolls around.
It can get a little depressing.
Thank God for Matt Pond and Sun Kil Moon and Sigur Ros.
Winter would defeat me if it weren’t for them.
This album was originally released as a free EP (titled Freeep) on the band’s website and later re-released as Auri Sacra Fames.
which means “the cursed hunger for gold”
I’m looking forward to a new full-length release from these guys sometime in March…
good timing I think… because that is right around the time full-fledged cabin fever sets in.
What tunes get you through the winter?
