RE: Sister...IMO the intro needs a little something (a bit hooky) to give it juice...also the intro vocal section would benefit from a lush but short (almost invisible) reverb. I like the way the guitar enters underneath the vocal. It builds nicely to a good pace.

Re: First Snow - I'm liking that guitar's quite engaging...but the track slows and loses interest in the mid-section. The track reminds me of Winter but also mid-Summer too.

One general criticism of both tracks is that the vocal doesn't stand out enough in the arrangement. Maybe a little Haas delay would fix this (but only very subtly, i.e. so it's not evident). What I think would benefit both tracks is finding the unique elements and making them integral to the arrangement...sorry to be so cryptic.
