Winter music

Is there really any better label to curl up by the fire and watch snow fall to on these dark cold nights, awash with guitar fuzz and dreamy synthesizers than the esteemed 4AD? (Albeit I don't actually have a fireplace, but the thought completes the picture.)

I recently came across this excellent illustrated history of 4AD's first 20 years, complete with Mr. Vaughan Oliver's extraordinary artworks.

For those really wintery evenings though, nothing compares to Lycia's Cold LP. (Yeah, ohmygawth. Sush.)
