As mentioned in an earlier post, EPISODE 008 of 'Mix Tape Radio on Folk Radio UK' has a bit of a winter theme (a bit of a 'winter is coming' theme, to be more precise).
It contains a lot of songs that evoke that sense of darkness and isolation that the upcoming cold weather and damn near 24 hours of night bring, but it is also has some songs that remind you of the pleasant moments that only a little bit of snow and loneliness can create.
Like this song.
Which is a perfectly painted picture of one of those simple winter moments that can only come from a place like Canada (or a place with Canada like weather).
Writing a message in the snow. Returning the message in the condensation on the glass. One person preparing to leave the warmth of their house and another waiting patiently outside in the cold. With an upbeat bass line and beat to remind you that it's not all doom and gloom this time of year.
