Well, winter has finally hit Perth, W.A. now this weekend, it has taken a little while to happen this year. It was freeze fuckin’ cold but it’s most likely not as cold as some other places on earth. I remember growing up down south it was even colder down there. So to celebrating that fact here’s my fave tracks that have a winter relate theme. Now from you lucky buggers in the North hemisphere I did make a Summer playlist too if now wanna check it out, it’s here.
Basically I’m starting with the word winter then going to rain because it’s been pissing down all weekend. I hope you enjoy my little list that plays for my Monday morning blog post. My tracks seem to be more on the mellow side of things but they’re a few up beat numbers too, enjoy!
