10 Indie Songs to Keep You Warm This Winter

[We’re more than a week deep into March but many parts of the continent still feel like early February.  And with everyone from the Weather Network and AccuWeather to the Farmer’s Almanac predicting cooler than average temperatures through April, we’ve got a lot way to go before it’s patio weather.  With that in mind, here’s a guest post by Craig Kleika, Community Manager at the ticket search engine, Rukkus.com. -AC]

Wintertime is marked by extended periods of hibernation, Netflix/pizza bagel binges, copious amounts of hot tea (more often than not spiked with Jack Daniels), and the occasional trek into civilization. Maybe that’s just me, but either way, the frigid weather sparks a mood that we can hide, but we can’t run from. If there’s one thing we can probably all agree on, it’s that these cold times make the rest of the months that much more special. To keep your indie body and unconventional heart warm these next few weeks as we prepare for Spring, please lend an ear to these 10 wistful but blissful tracks. Enjoy!
