Cool Hunting’s Hibernating Playlist

Our latest favorite music for avoiding the outdoors


As winter sputters along in New York, we’re finding plenty of reasons to be homebodies —an activity that calls for the appropriate soundtrack. Like Atlas Sounds’ opener “The Shakes,” some of the best music for the season seems engineered for playing on vinyl, a choice that helps conjure warmth on even the coldest, darkest nights. We also included some cheerful songs, perfect for the intimacy of always being indoors, and a few rebellious shouts (“Yella Diamonds” by Ricky Rozay, Waka Flocka and Ludacris on “Rich and Flexin'”) to get you amped for work when you’d rather be snuggling. Remember, you have to be ready to be reborn come spring.
