Best Winter Albums. . .

I love all seasons, each one has its own charm, but I guess I just have a thing for the winter

There are so many great winter albums. . . and winter is near now. . . so which are your favorites ?

I'll start with 4 albums that always keep me warm during that magical period of the year, whether it's night , afternoon, evening, or early hours of after the rain mornings :

Opeth – Damnation





Shpongle – Are You Shpongled?





Ozric Tentacles – Erpland





Porcupine Tree – In Absentia

Re: Best Winter Albums. . .

There is a very strong connection between time of the year and music that I listen... By "tradition" since the winter of 2002/2003 and onward I always listen to The World That Summer album by Death in June. Also any Plastikman feels fine, Dopplereffekt/Der Zyklus/Arpanet fits perfectly and since last year - dub techno is essential for getting through dark, foggy early mornings:

Re: Best Winter Albums. . .

Wisp - Frozen Days EP




Annoyingly my favourite off the EP 'Holiday Behind Glass' isn't on Youtube

Probably my favourite thing to put on when it's frozen outside though.

Re: Best Winter Albums. . .

koneyn & Fox, I agree, dub techno/ambient techno dub goes very well with the winter. For me it's:

P. Laoss – Landscapes & Machines



Yagya – Rigning




And more on the ambient electronica side of things: Marconi Union – Distance




m1st3rl, definitely! Airdrawndagger is still his best work in my opinion. Absolutely wonderful. Timeless.

Hey mookster, my favorite by Wisp is The Shimmering Hour. Goes very nice with the winter too



Mr.RFJ, oh yes, Disintegration is a pure winter album

ambinate, yeah, Damnation is a pure winter album as well, for me at least

Takk... is lovely. I love some of Sigur Rós' stuff.


candlesayshi, yeah, I love In Distance too
More stuff from n5MD that goes really well with the winter in my opinion is Aerosol – Airborne


Winterlight – Hope Dies Last


Dreissk – The Finding



Cheers everybody

Re: Best Winter Albums. . .

The Yagya - Rigning sounds is more suited for fall than Winter imo

Re: Best Winter Albums. . .

How could I forget?

THE winter music of all winter musics for me personally:



Try taking a night walk through deep snow under orange street lights with this on your headphones and you'll know what I mean.

Re: Best Winter Albums. . .


or anything from that album.

I hate to pimp my own stuff but I made a set of songs specifically for a winter setting.


If the mods don't allow this I'll take it down if requested, I just thought it was relevant. Anyway, on to more...



If I think of more I'll post them
