Of Winter

The nights are dark, the chill is closing in around us, and it makes me look for familiar music that some how captures the feeling of cosy warmth against the cold backdrop. Mogwai's Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will (phenonemal title) and its close-companion EP Earth Division both came out in 2011 and really encapsulate a lot of that sound for me. Those are our features tonight, along with selections from many an electronic composer and other, spine-tingling sounds.

There's also a new track from Thom Yorke, and a new track from Jon Hopkins covering Thom Yorke. Plus we're accidentally a lot of Joy Division; not even sure how that happened, but not mad about it.
