Springtime in Australia is just around the corner, and because of this we thought it was an appropriate time to celebrate some of our favourite tracks from this year’s Winter season. Highlighting a mixture of Vinyl Garden featured tunes and some we haven’t shared with you yet, sit back, snuggle up and help us say farewell to Winter 2014.

If you haven’t checked out Icelandic folk acoustic artist Ásgeir yet, then do yourself a favour and get his stunning song “King And Cross” on your current playlist. Right now.
Besides exhibiting that fabled European beauty with his lazy beanie, neat stubble and icy blue eyes (ahem, back on track now Erin), he creates magic with thick harmonies and simple, bright guitar lines. Think a little of the rhythm of Sigur Rós with a touch of echoey vocal stylings like Dustin Tebbutt.
Like what you hear? Just wait till you check out his live sets:
He strikes a nice balance between relaxing yet energising in his music – something that’s often hard to find in the genre!
You can listen to more of Ásgeir’s sweet tunes in his new album In The Silence or catch him on his Australian tour later this year.
