This guy-gal synth-rock-pop duo formed back in Washington state in 1997 and in recent years have squeezed out some subversive holiday singles. For 2014 they rolled them up into an EP and put it out there for us free from Bandcamp. Wish I'd known before I finished my holiday disc; this kind of observational, snarky material is the kind of stuff I stand holiday watch for every year. "Holiday Hold It" is an admonition to make sure you had your bathroom break before waiting on line for Santa at the mall. "Fake Blood For Christmas" is what the singer is buying online for all her friends this year, and why not, with the holiday season reaching ever backward toward Halloween nowadays. That point gets made again with "Christmas Is In December," a rant more directly about that annual problem, with a sneaky dig at Mariah Carey's ubiquitous holiday hit. "Christmas Makes Me Want To Die" is a humorously over-the-top lament about ever-more-stressful holiday preparations, "Kitty Don't Eat That Tinsel" is about the cat owners' annual holiday worry, and "Peppermint In Everything" celebrates the unofficial holiday candy, with a nod to its salubrious effects when combined with schnapps. Add to this an alternate, less synth-based take on "Holiday Hold It," karaoke versions of a couple other songs and a third "beats" version of "Kitty" and you get an album-length presentation. They say one of these years they're going to get around to a full album, and I can hardly wait.

I hadn't heard of Ms. Lewis before stumbling over this 2014 album online, but I'm happy to let folks know that there are still rockabillies out there keeping the spirit of original rock 'n roll alive, and she's one of them for sure. Of course, over the years people have come to conflate rockabilly with country music because the folks who created this style of music came from the country music heartland. Take Annie Marie, whose name is actually Dolan but she's the daughter of Linda Gail Lewis, sister of Jerry Lee and performer in her own right. My pick to click from this album is "Hush Lil' Baby (Merry Christmas)," which is a revisitation of "Hey Bo Diddley," which itself is a reimagined "Mockingbird," and such are the ways in which history are made. But then I've always been a sucker for a well-played tune based in the Diddley beat. "Little Drummer Boy" gets the jungle drums treatment as well. "Rock 'n Roll Christmas" is a nice straight upbeat rocker, possibly an original as I can't remember another version. "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" gets an interesting rock arrangement as well. The rest of the album is classic carols and popular holiday tunes like "Blue Christmas," "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," "The First Noel," "Santa Baby," "Frosty the Snowman," and "Merry Christmas Baby." Ms. Lewis' vocals are generally good, but unfortunately a lot of this sounds a bit by-the-numbers when heard all at once. Nevertheless, there are some good tunes here to lend some historical gravitas to your Christmas mixes.

The 2014 edition of this annual compilation is only EP-length this year, but like always it's a free download. Once again Piney Gir is part of the proceedings with a cover of the classic "Christmas Island" in their distinctive style. Magnuson goes all heavy metal on "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," Alejandra O'Leary puts a bit of alt-pop spin on "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)," Hawks Do Not Share go all moody on "Christmas Eve, Montmartre," and the Love Dimension throws the garage door open on their psych-rocker "Got Gratitude."

Despite the name, this is a British pop-rock band with several albums to their credit, and for 2014 they tackle Christmas with an EP of strong power-pop provenance. Four originals, including the previously released and delightfully snarky "A Doe to a Deer," join versions of Mud's "Lonely This Christmas," which gets a downtempo treatment, and the antique carol "The Holly and the Ivy," which is reverent but still fits in with the other songs. "When Christmas Comes" is an almost triumphal rock anthem, "Kindle a Flame In Her Heart" is a fine midtempo holiday love song and "The Trains Don't Run (It's Christmas Day)," is a stop-motion tempo ode to a typically British concern, seeing as how they actually have trains for people to ride on most places. I could have stood an album-length project, but I won't be greedy; this is an almost perfect Christmas record. (They're selling some vinyl copies at their shows and a few selected UK-US stores.)

kweller.jpg
This is Kweller's vinyl-only release for Black Friday Record Store Day 2014, and so far he's sticking to his guns on that score, so go track down a vinyl emporium (or haunt eBay) if you want it. You do, by the way; a solid power popper with nice crunchy guitars well under three minutes that's about not rushing the season. Considering the song was released on Black Friday, can't fault him for consistency. Flip side is "Here Comes Santa Claus" from the "Merry Friggin Christmas" soundtrack.

"Snow," New Found Glory (Hopeless)

newfoundglory.jpgThis long-running pop-punk band brings us a holiday single for 2014, a midtempo number with a strong melody and reflective lyrics about seasonal memories. Nice change of pace.

"FaLaLaLaLoveYa," Nikki Lane (New West)

I was conflicted as Nikki's clearly pitching for country airplay (see cover art), but she also hangs out with Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, who produced an album for her. The heavy use of pedal steel suggests a country song, but put a regular guitar in that spot and it's a 60s girl group song. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Even with the pedal steel it's still more Brill Building than Nashville.
chrislee.jpgI am seriously remiss in overlooking, until my friend Rich Lewis pointed it out to me, that Christopher Lee -- the Christopher Lee, actor in "Lord of the Rings," "Star Wars," multiple outings as Dracula, recurring guest in the British series "The Avengers," and more -- has a parallel career as a heavy metal vocalist and for 2014 has released his third Christmas single in a row. Did I mention he's 92 years old? I'm afraid I like the idea of this more than the reality, but then high concepts tend to play out that way. For 2012, he started the string with A Heavy Metal Christmas, with fast metal performances of "Little Drummer Boy" and "Silent Night." In 2013, A Heavy Metal Christmas Too featured "Jingle Hell," which is "Jingle Bells" with new, angrier lyrics, and the non-holiday "My Way," about which there's no question. This year, 2014, it's "Darkest Carols, Faithful Sing" (click the cover), which is "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" with more debauched lyrics, accompanied by an extended vocal version and an instrumental of the same song. How you feel about the singer is probably going to color how you feel about the songs, but if you're doing a theme playlist featuring "Star Wars" or Tolkien-related stuff, one of these tunes will fit in just fine.

"Sump'n Claus," Saturday Night Live (Hulu)

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
When you get on Santa's "naughty" list and aren't supposed to get anything, in steps Sump'n Claus to throw you an envelope with some cash in it, goes the fable. Or at least the "Saturday Night Live" sketch from last night. (This is a hint regarding one of the site's traditions, by the way.)

Nick Lowe's touring with Los Straitjackets on his "Quality Holiday Tour," performing selections from Nick's well-received Christmas album of 2013. By the way, Los Straitjackets aren't exactly strangers to the Christmas scene either, as shown here and also here. Anyway, I'm going to see these two musical titans play tonight, and it's a bit of a road trip from Rudolph's North Pole headquarters, so apologies if posting is a little sparse through the weekend.

Hat tip to Dangerous Minds for unearthing this gem. The soundtrack is the work of a guy named Andy Rehfeldt, who apparently does this kind of thing from time to time, but this is the first Christmas-oriented one. This should purge your memories of those "Christmas Remixed" versions of Der Bingle.  

Wild Winter, Smoke Fairies (Full Time Hobby)

I've never heard of these women before now, but they're quite intriguing, sort of a cross between Lucius and The Raveonettes. And they've gone the full monty with a Christmas album for 2014. They're taking the "winter album" approach lest things get too holly jolly, going for the "bittersweet and wild" as they say in the press release from Rough Trade, which has the physical media, while Amazon (click the art) and iTunes get the digital trade. The title song evokes longing even as it's "21 degrees below," "Bad Good" is a garage-band ode to the rules of Santa Club, "Christmas Without a Kiss" is a fuzzy-guitar-led dirge to a search for love that just keeps building in intensity, "Three Kings" is another original, not the familiar carol, and "Steal Softly Thru Snow" almost swings into First Aid Kit-Secret Sisters territory. "Snowglobe Blizzard" is a suspenseful instrumental, "Give and Receive" briefly recalls the story of the child from a foreign land "who's coming to save us," "Circles in the Snow" is an uptempo ode to keeping the home fires, and "So Much Wine" lays on the synths to tell the story of an angry holiday breakup. This is quite the compelling collection of good original songs well performed, with a solid rock edge on even the most downtempo and contemplative numbers.

This 2014 album is a label compilation for Firebreath, a Nashville label that promotes local artists through record releases, video productions and live show promotion. The artists showcased here are roughly Americana, mostly folky, only a little bit country. Grant Ferris kicks things off with the semi-title song, an entertaining novelty called "All I Got For Christmas Was Drunk." Alayna Anderson does a suitably dramatic "Little Drummer Boy," Ally Brown breaks out the ukelele for "I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas," Joshua Dent creates a cello-led instrumental medley of "Carol of the Bells x God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," Rae Hering offers a sprightly "Have Yourself a Merry Christmas" and Hannah Johnson emotes a brief "I'll Be Home For Christmas." Fable Cry lets loose with "Town Hall" from "The Nightmare Before Christmas," a performance more in keeping with that movie's soundtrack than the other tunes on this album. Zach & Hannah do a serviceable version of "Fairytale of New York" and Kirabelle Frabotta wraps things up with a medley of "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve" and "Auld Lang Syne." A fairly gentle collection of tunes, although novelty fans might want Grant Ferris' title song. This collection is on Bandcamp and Noisetrade.

Christmas Songs, John Brazell (self-issued)

John's a performing singer-songwriter from Napa, Calif., with a couple albums to his credit, and he rolled out this brief collection for 2014 featuring one original tune, "All I Want," a nicely syncopated midtempo number about wanting a lover for Christmas. Acoustic poppy arrangements of "Deck the Halls" and "Auld Lang Syne" round out this EP. It's on Noisetrade.

"Father Christmas," Bad Religion (Epitaph)

Following on from last year's full Christmas album, this long-running punk band couldn't leave it lay, coming back for 2014 with this single, a strong cover of the Kinks' holiday classic. If you've somehow missed out on this song over the years, this version's as good an introduction as any.

"Deck the Halls," Larry & Bob (YouTube)

Larry and Bob wanted to get a few laughs in for the holiday season, so they did this, and they sent me the link. Enjoy.

 

Christmas Card, Marvin Sapp (RCA)

marvinsapp.jpg
This 2013 album slipped by me last year, but better late than never. Marvin's a gospel singer and worship leader who was part of the group Commissioned before going solo, but he keeps the old gang around for a couple of songs on this collection. This is a solid collection of modern r'nb performances, the majority of which are on original songs, kicking off with the title tune and "Feels Real Good," both of which are uptempo celebrations of the holiday. The ballad "Home For Christmas" features a guest appearance by r'nb singer Joe, and Commissioned comes in on the original "Honor the King" and the classic "What Child Is This," both dramatic slow-tempo celebrations of the religious aspects of the holiday. "Joseph's Song," another original, is the Nativity story from Joseph's viewpoint in a slow-jam tempo, "Holy" continues the slow jamming, and "Love at Christmas" is more of a standard r'nb ballad. "Thank You" is a funk workout featuring the Sapp Kids, and things wrap up with "old school" soul on "Don't Get It Twisted," emphasizing the true meaning of Christmas. Although Marvin's a gospel performer, the album nicely balances the sacred and the secular, and there's plenty of uptempo moments to get your Christmas party started.

Mixing and mashing their way through the holidays are the various DJs and Pro Tools jockeys who help us get a different look at the holiday by cutting and pasting the familiar into something new. And appropriately enough, Mojochronic kicks off "Number 9" with "Yuletide Beatles," doing what Giles Martin did with The Beatles Love but emphasizing selections from the Fabs' Christmas flexidiscs in honor of the holiday. Mojochronic returns later with "Walking In LA Winter Wonderland," in which he builds an 80s Christmas song out of the Missing Persons' hit and Jean Dixon's version of the popular carol. Voicedude presides over a shotgun marriage of Mariah Carey and AC/DC on "You Shook Me All I Want For Christmas" and puts Smokey Robinson over Plain White T's on "Hey There, St. Nicholas!" Rapper DMX once did an off-the-cuff version of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," and dj BC lays it over the Burl Ives version here, then comes back with "Forgot About Merry," in which the Staples Singers meet an array of Christmas villains. ATOM offers "A Glimpse of James' Jingle Socks," in which James Brown is reimagined as a chill artist, and "Santa Ist Das Bein Stalker," in which a German guy snarks on Santa while various grooves play behind him, and I don't have any idea where that came from. DJ Schmolli keeps the Germanic groove going on "Weihnachtszeit-Song," and Divide and Kreate has Peggy Lee doing "Little Breakbeat Boy," in which various hip-hop beats accompany the "Little Drummer Boy." DJ M.i.F takes the "remix classic jazz age singers" craze of a few years ago a few steps further, going crazy on Ella Fitzgerald and Bing Crosby with "Children Winter Wonderland." DJ Morgoth offers "The Power of New Divide," in which Linkin Park is uneasily joined to Frankie Goes to Hollywood, and "Carol of the Tolling Bell" is G3RSt's combination of Metallica and Shawn Lee's Ping Pong Orchestra. And no, Metallica aren't playing "Carol of the Bells" on this mashup. Mashups aren't for everybody, of course, but for those who like to see familiar themes subverted, especially at the holiday, Santastic has become a great holiday tradition.

This 2014 release just snuck out the other day on iTunes, and it features the multiple Grammy nominee showing off his pipes on the popular carol, backed just by piano. He's a very strong singer, if you've heard his hits, and this performance is sufficiently heartfelt to appeal to just about everybody. No Amazon link, as it's not there, at least not yet. It's there, click the cover as usual.

Amy's an established songwriter and performer who's had some success pitching songs to movies and television, and for 2014 she's wrapped up a collection of her own Christmas songs from past years into this downloadable EP. This is your basic female alt-pop collection of performances, mostly on the ballad side of the ledger, but with strong melodic hooks. "Christmas Is Closer" is about holiday anticipation, "Love's a Light" is about finding your way home for Christmas, "Wishes Come True" is self-explanatory, and the title song is a more uptempo love song. Rounding things out is the only cover, an unadorned reading of "Mele Kalikimaka." A mellow grouping, but lots of good songwriting. Amazon will sell you a couple of these songs as singles, but you'll have to go to Noisetrade to get the whole thing. Leave a tip.

Joe Perry's Merry Christmas, Joe Perry (Unison)

Aerosmith's lead guitarist isn't well known for performing solo, but back in 2008 he let loose with a faithful cover of "Run Rudolph Run." For 2014 he's back with an EP that includes that performance and adds strong instrumental takes on "White Christmas" and "Silent Night" and a very good vocal performance of "Santa Claus Is Back In Town," the Christmas blues number that originated with Elvis Presley's first Christmas album. No surprises given the guy's day job, but classic rock fans should eat this up.

OK, they weren't first to the text message Christmas song, but this is a pretty good one. Apparently they've updated their Under the Influence album to include it, but of course you can download it alone too.

theboth.jpgTaste-tippers know from this record's appearance on the Superego label that Aimee Mann had something to do with it, since that's her vanity label. The Both is Aimee with Ted Leo, who together released a well-regarded 2014 album, and as they're touring with a Christmas show this season, a new holiday song was called for. It's a mid-tempo number that sounds all of a piece with Aimee's past work, emphasizing the melancholy of the season while Leo brings his trademark vocals and guitar to the proceedings. I'd call this a holiday gotta-have.

This Burlington, Ontario band is probably best known for its five members gathering around a single guitar to play Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" on YouTube. Give 'em credit for a smart promotional device there. This 2014 EP is six not particularly obscure choices from the Christmas repertoire, and the sound is that of a contemporary pop-rock band, nothing earthshaking, but also nothing that's sequenced, vocordered and auto-tuned to a fare-thee-well as so much contemporary pop and rock music is. This is the sound of five people making music together, and good on 'em for keeping the tradition going.  "A Marshmallow World" and "Sleigh Ride" are straight off the Phil Spector album, although they bring their own personalities to the performances, "Silent Night" is done as a ukelele tune, "Holly Jolly Christmas" is an almost country performance, in keeping with the original, and "I Saw Three Ships" and "Feliz Navidad" are sprightly versions in folky arrangements with nylon-stringed instruments to the fore. A little more originality would have pushed this to the front of this year's releases, but this collection does have its charms.

recordkicks.jpgThis small label apparently specializes in old-school soul, and this 2010 single is shared by two different artists. The Diplomats of Solid Sound take on "Let It Snow" in an arrangement borrowed from Archie Bell and the Drells' "Tighten Up," though it's sung, not spoken. Ray Harris and the Fusion Experience take it from there with an original, "Soulful Christmas," that's more 70s funk to fill the dance floor. Can't decide which one I like better, but of course I don't actually have to, do I?

  • By now you're aware that Bob Geldof got the Band Aid back together for Band Aid 30, once again performing "Do They Know It's Christmastime" with an all-star cast, this time to raise money for the fight against ebola. I mention it in passing only because it's not available in the USA, although if you're willing to do the "switch stores" dance on iTunes, you can probably grab it there. UPDATE: Grab it from Amazon.
  • Along the same lines, a group called the Peace Collective, another ad hoc group of musicians and singers, has put out a song called "All Together Now," written to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the British/German Christmas truce during World War I. Again, not available in the USA.
  • In the past, we've had the group Sleeping At Last posted here for a Christmas album released in 2012, and a single of "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" from 2013. For 2014 the group has added "O Come O Come Emanuel," and if you're just finding out about this, the album has been updated for 2014 with both those singles. You can get it free, or for a tip, on Noisetrade.

This South Wales band is another one that's made a tradition of holiday releases, and we've had previous entries by the group on this site before. For 2014, they've issued "This Christmas Dream" and simultaneously gone online with an EP containing this song and all of their four previous Christmas tunes. It's a welcome addition to the holiday rock 'n roll canon, featuring strong power-pop performances. The current year's song mentioned earlier is a nice uptempo number with all the Christmas touches, and the lyrics are about happy holiday dreams. "A Little Christmas Love" and "The Greatest Christmas" are also uptempo and lyrically self-explanatory, "Christmas in the Morning" is a strong rocker about waking up on Christmas day, and that leaves the only ballad, "Maybe This Christmas," which I wasn't enthusiastic about on first review, but it benefits from being heard alongside the other songs. Keep the siren on for the holidays, guys. Only available on iTunes for now. Here's a video of the newest song.


"Lights on the Tree," Loop Line (self-issued)

A dreamy tale of having the Christmas lights inspire a child's vivid dreams as he or she drops off to sleep on Christmas Eve. Loop Line had a previous Christmas single in 2012, and this 2014 release has a nice dramatic feel and an indie vibe as well. The band's discography is on display at Bandcamp, and the band states there may be additional music in 2014, so check in occasionally.

Here's a nice bit of blue-eyed soul for 2014, another song about getting home from a long distance in time for holiday celebrating and commiserating with family. Click through to Amazon to grab it.

"Nicholas," Work Drugs (self-issued)

Here's an interesting synth-dance-pop ballad from this up-and-coming Philadelphia band for 2014, in which Santa takes the mic and sings about coming home to his love. (Although he's not away long, since he does the whole world in one night...) I grabbed this from WXPN-FM's website, but you can check Soundcloud for it too.
