Modern Mixtape: 10 Songs to Welcome the Blizzard to the District

D.C. is supposed to get somewhere around two feet of snow in the next 48 hours-- yikes. Luckily, nothing suits these calm gray skies and downy flakes better than some soft, wintery tunes, perfect for cozying up inside (or, if you're brave and bundled up, venturing out into the snow itself). Below, ten songs to help you ring in the Blizzardocaplyse of 2010, from the soothing acoustic harmonies of Bon Iver and Phosphorescent, to brand-new winter-ready songs from Vampire Weekend and Animal Collective. The last track is especially gorgeous-- a new Fleet Foxes cover by up-and-coming Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit.
