Cold & Snow & such

just a few songs related to the weather today, being rather cold for southern England.

Eskimo Scientist (mp3) by  The Mood from Synaesthesia.
  Hardly a wintry song, quite the opposite, and after three listens today, I don't really know what the eskimo bit has to with it... but it's a fine bit of summery pop.

Fallen Snow (mp3) by Au Revoir Simone from The Bird of Music.
Ah, this is more like it - they have the happy knack of writing charming little songs, although the lyrics aren't always so - 
Depressing things are empty beds and lonely dinners
And women who are middle aged with naked fingers
I'll buy myself a ring
To symbolize this marriage every time I break the laws to let you in
