Merry Indie Xmas, Adam Horne (self-issued)

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
merryindie.jpgWell, this is a hoot. Way too short to be a real album, but Horne, of the band Bear Ceuse, got it into his head that he needed to hear popular Christmas carols as they would sound if done by up-to-the-minute indie rockers, and so he did it himself. Nine tunes, none more than a minute, and all being streamed (only) via Soundcloud. "Rudolph" is done in the style of Interpol, "Joy to the World" as Beach House, "Here Comes Santa Claus" as Bon Iver, "Silent Night" as The xx, "Deck the Halls" as Das Racist, "12 Days of Xmas" as Gorillaz, "Hark! Ye Herald Angels Sing" as The National, "Jingle Bells" as Wavves and "O Christmas, Ye Cold Wind Blows" as Mumford and Sons. This is great, too bad he didn't carry these tunes on to full length. But maybe we heard just enough, in this Twitter era, to enjoy the concept. From 2012. (Maybe the full-length follows in 2013?)
