53: Another Winter

Last year, I celebrated the season with a trove of ice blue tracks from wintery video game levels, with none of the mirth and jingle of most Christmastime music. This year, I intended to go cheerier… but I didn’t, and instead I’m given you more chilled-to-the-touch levels that evoke Christmas eve in an ice cave. Stay cool.

BTW, this episode is a sequel to last year’s “Christmas eve in an ice cave” episode, Diamond Dust. You can also listen to all winter music episodes past, present and future in one playlist, if you so choose.
