I am a strong cold weather denier, in my head it’s still August. At this rate I might accept the cold in early spring. For now I’m just going to keep on denying that I need a hat or that I might wake up to a layer of snow on the ground.

The only good thing about the cold is winter songs. They have a special kind of feel—mostly depressing and slightly bleak, but somehow still hopeful. Think Bon Iver or Ben Howard. I gathered up 12 of the very best sweater weather songs to keep you warm through this brutal season. Enjoy!
