In my never ending quest for the best and brightest new acts, I sometimes neglect really solid old music in my collection. I decided to do what every good music-lover does when the seasons change– make a mix for the dark winters months as a buffer against the freezing cold weather. It was initially crafted for a recent trip to Chicago, but would work well in any sub-zero climate. I dredged up some great old tunes from the frosty Colorado days, as well as some newbies to keep on your radar.
