    Cocteau Twins - Victorialand and also the double EP Tiny Dynamine/Echoes In A Shallow Bay.

    This totally beat(box)-less Cocteau Twins album is probably their most wintery effort. It´s almost crystalline and as fragile as snowflakes. Works on grey, cold winter days AND on cold blue-sky snowy hills.
    If you´re in a really cavernous, dark wintery mood, get the vinyl and play it at 33rpm (it´s originally mastered on 45rpm).
     
  9. The amazing Depeche Mode singles rate (the winner will be revealed TONIGHT!!!) just made me realize that VIOLATOR is a fantastic winter album!

    It opens with an invitation to a journey: "let me show you the world in my eyes", it could as well be a ski-lift ride or an alpine trip opening the view to grandiose vistas as the beat chugs along and the strings glisten. The mood is not summery at all, it´s muted, precise, steel-blue and ice-cube cool.
    The Sweetest Perfection is the sound of flowers freezing and breaking if you´re not careful.
    Personal Jesus is the exuberance and madness of a snowball fight. You can actually hear people stomping through the snow and you feel the icecold shock as a fistfull of ice is being shoved down your neck...but you´re about to take revenge.
    Halo and Waiting for The Night are actually evoking a yuletide atmosphere.. The first is hymnal and selfexplanatory while the latter is almost like Silent Night. A crystalline, cold starry night that starts in october and ends in march!
    We´re off to enjoy a pristine, untouched wintery landscape as we Enjoy The Silence and we´re back in for hot chocolate at the fireplace with Policy of Truth and the wrapped-in-cotton-mood of Blue Dress that ends with the sound of the sun shining and reflecting through thousands of icicles.
    Clean is the cold,stark death grip of winter fighting against the first attempts of spring to shatter it´s power. But it´s not letting go yet. Relentless and majestic it sweeps across a barren land towards its fortress of solitude.

    Have another Glühwein, dear!
