Brian’s Mixtape #20: The Big Freeze


Brian at home

Brr… it’s cold. Being a sensible sort of chap, Brian’s not going outside until all this horrid weather is over. You might think it’s better for owls, what with their ability to fly and all, but our poor mixtape maker faces the daily threat of having his wings frozen together and falling from the sky. Plop. Quite apart from being sore, it’d be awfully undignified, and Brian has a reputation to protect. 

Instead he’s going to stay in with a delicious bowl of mouse soup and listen to the lovely tunes he’s cobbled together. Some about the cold and a couple that are just songs he’s discovered and loves.  


  1. Ella Fitzgerald – Baby It’s Cold Outside
  2. Au Revoir Simone – Fallen Snow
  3. Idlewild – Bronze Medal (Acoustic)
  4. The Beach Boys – Cuddle Up
  5. JayMay – Blue Skies
  6. Liam Frost & Martha Wainwright – Your Hand In Mine
  7. Pickin’ On Series – New Slang
  8. Midlake – It Covers The Hillsides
  9. The White Stripes – In The Cold, Cold Night
  10. The Cranberries – The Icicle Melts
  11. Headless Heroes – The North Wind Blew South
  12. Efterklang – Cutting Ice to Snow
