If — even for one second — you want to escape the subarctic winter temperatures, just scroll down a touch and press play. Yes, I know December hasn’t even started yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy this uplifting warm jam from Chicago’s Distant Brothers. In general, I’m a sucker for a good folk pop tune, and when you couple that with a catchy-as-hell banjo melody and a djembe to keep the rhythm, it becomes my folk pop kryptonite.

In a touch under three minutes, Distant Brothers has me boppin’ my head and humming along with them. Press play below and join me:
