Here Comes the Joy, The Drabs (self-issued)

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
This San Diego band had an album out in 2012, and now for 2015 they plopped this 4-song EP on Bandcamp. (Also on Amazon, click the art.) "Santa's Got Toys" is a strong opening rock statement with lyrics about how all the toys get broken, but Santa just keeps bringing them. "This Year" is a midtempo vow that things are going to be different, "Mary Christmas" is an ode to a girl of that name, and they wind up with an instrumental "Pub Crawl," as do a lot of us when the family celebrations end. Rocking holiday music with a little roughage in the lyrics. Nice work, guys.
While putting together the Kool Kat 2 album review, I discovered Wyatt, who's on that album, had another Christmas cut up on Bandcamp. From 2013, this nice uptempo power popper draws mainly from the Beach Boys in sound and arrangement, not bad considering Wyatt did almost everything but drums on this song. Check him out. Also up on Amazon.

Up All Night, The Yule Logs (self-issued)

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
YuleLog4.jpgWhen The Yule Logs popped out a live album back in 2012, the Cheap Plavix Without Prescription (Plavix), Obat Clopidogrel Generik - mistletunes.com brain trust thought we might not be hearing much new music going forward, since three albums is plenty of material to base a seasonal act upon. But they're back for 2015 with this entertaining full-length collection. In the past, a lot of their material was pastiches of popular songs overlaid with Christmas lyrics; this time around it's mostly original songs, although the sentiments will be familiar, except when they snark around with them. "A Jingle Ate My Baby" is them messing around with the lyrics to "Jingle Bells," and "Story of Hanukkah" is a short reading of the legend over a Beach Boys/Jan & Dean bed. And they do a fairly straight reading of "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" over a semi-calypso beat. The title song is a poppy ode to Christmas parties, "Ain't Got Nothing {On Christmas Day)" enlists a horn section in service of a soulful number about being alone on the holiday, and "Thought That Counts" recounts the awkwardness of getting unwanted gifts. "Leaping Lord" has fun playing with one of the lyrics to "First Day of Christmas," as does "Four Calling Birds." They break out the pedal steel for "(I Saw Mommy Kiss Santa) Last Night," a different take on the better known song in that Santa wasn't Daddy, and "Oh Dreidel" is an almost "Blue Suede Shoes" take on the Hanukkah custom. Wrapping things up is "Michael and His Christmas Tree," the plot of which escapes me except that they're apparently singing about Michael Stipe. Nevertheless, it's a fun album closer. All their albums are up at Bandcamp now, but you can also preorder the new one at Amazon.

Robby has made a business out of hip-hop Christmas music, and for 2015 he's got two new tunes. "Christmas Forgiveness" is a fairly conventional recitation over a musical bed offering holiday-themed affirmations, and that's only streaming on Soundcloud so far. "Don't Be a Scrooge" is available for download, and it's more of a hip-hop workout, though completely safe for work and therefore for your family playlists.

Rocksea6.jpgThis organized charity in the Georgia/Florida area continues its annual drive to raise money for charity with musical outreach, and Volume 6 arrives for the 2015 holiday season. The musical style is, as always, mostly rootsy rock, which suits this site's mission statement. Sara Rachele kicks things off with the sprightly original "When the Fire Goes Out Tonight," the group von Grey offers the contemplative ballad "Cozy Tranquility," Mark Bliesener performs a nicely country-rock "It's Finally X-Mas Day," Eric Durrance contemplates "A Southern Christmas," and Martha's Trouble, about whom see more on this very site, donates their previously released "This Christmas." That wraps the original tunes on this collection; covers include the Electric Sons' semi-march treatment of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," Charlie Oxford's traditional treatment of "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts)," the Galavanters' Booker T-styled instrumental of "Jolly Old St. Nicholas," Michael Logan's solo acoustic "I'll Be Home For Christmas" and Amy Gerhartz's similar piano treatment of "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day." Another fine collection from Rock By the Sea to benefit good causes.

Somehow I have managed to miss the first eight volumes of this series, and Vol. 9 was actually out in 2014, but so it goes. It's the last of the series, according to the Australian producers' final statement on their Bandcamp page, and as it's free you should hie yourself over there, assuming you haven't beaten me to it as so many others probably have. The RAB folks are essentially curators, as they put out the call to indie rock bands to contribute finished tracks, and the final running order is what it is. In this case, it's a fine rock Christmas souvenir. Thee Knight of Thrashe cue the Bo Diddley rhythm on "Santa Claus (Here He Comes)," Burning Yule breaks down the fourth wall with the power-poppy "Santa Are You My Dad," the Click Beetles get compiled once again with their "So Glad It's Christmas," and Leadfinger get a sort of Jefferson Airplane groove going on the deceptively titled "Another Long Summer." The JAC with the Christmas Crew get a "Sweet Toothache" from Christmas treats, Class Action goes all primitive pop on "It Must Be Nearly Christmas," Cal Walker & Iain Wilson channel Bill & Ted on "Gonna Have a Wyld Time," and Ernie O With Richie Poate get a kind of late-60s thing going as they tell a Christmas story on "Gunna Tell You a Lie." Netherwood Lane dip into the garage-psychedelic well for "Christmas Without You," the Kiss-Offs offer a Blondie homage on "Santa Darlin'," Lotti Loop does what their band name suggests on the electronic "Crank Call Christmas," Hotlunch hearkens back to Mott the Hoople with "8 Letters For Going Home" and the Kleber Claux Memorial Singers wrap things up with the drone-backed chant "Treve de Noel," a song about the World War I Christmas truce. Someday I gotta go back and listen to the earlier volumes of this series.

A Maccabeats Hanukkah, Maccabeats (self-issued)

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
If you haven't encountered the Maccabeats before, they're a poppy a cappella group that specializes in Judaic music, setting traditional music to modern idioms and also performing modern compositions that fit their format. And that's pretty much the story of this seven-cut Hanukkah collection for 2015, which features five traditional tunes, "Al Hanissim (featuring The Orthobox)," "Mi Yemallel," "Hanerot Hallalu," "Maoz Tzur," and "Oh Hanukkah," along with Peter Yarrow's "Light One Candle" and Miami Boys Choir's "Light Up the Nights." This is pretty much in the tradition of Rockapella, the Blenders and the Nylons, only specializing in Jewish music. They previously had a Hanukkah tune in 2010 called "Candlelight," which garnered strong YouTube action, and in 2011 they covered Matisyahu's "Miracle." Probably should have included them with this collection, but I'm sure you can find them without too much help. Currently on iTunes, not Amazon, or you can just go to their website to link out to a purchase.
This is the second collection from these Central Pennsylvania-based producers, and like the first one it benefits the Susan Giblin Foundation for Animal Wellness and Welfare. Also like the first one, power pop rules the roost, or the kennel in this case. This 2014 collection actually features bands from all over -- the Genuine Fakes, makers of the ballad "You Always Come Back Home," are from Sweden, in fact. The Honeymoon Stallions give us the uptempo "Snowbirds," for those who like tropical Christmases. The Bottle Kids (Featuring Captain Storm) yearn for a "Christmas in Paris," and feel free to use that as a shout-out in regard to the recent tragedy there. The Pengwins announce in Phil Spector-shaped tones that "Christmas Is Coming Again" to kick off the disc, and speaking of Spector, the Split Squad play off the progression under "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" on their own song "Another Lonely Christmas." The patron saints of power pop get a nod on the jangly "Beatles Vinyl" by The Tor Guides, and Shake Some Action! not surprisingly evoke the Flamin' Groovies on "Christmas in the Sun." Dan Kibler provides us the folk-poppy ballad "Winter Sun," S-Connection goes all New Vaudeville Band on "Poor Boy," and Sonata Form offer an ode to "Kurtis and Bart," which sounds like the band's pets, and that would be in keeping with the premise behind the album. Acoustic guitars are to the fore on Stephen Lawrenson's "Glad It's Christmas," electric piano anchors Wyatt Funderburk's sweet ballad "Cold," and minor legend Martin Newell wraps things up with an ode to the "Ghosts of Christmas." An eclectic collection, sorry I missed it last year.

This Long Island artist had a long history performing around his stomping grounds and occasionally opening for national artists before putting out a solo album in 2013. For 2015, he's got a full album of Christmas goodies. Self-identifying as "Americana," that's a tip to you that there is rootsy rock with blues and country influences on offer. And extra points to Johnny for leaving the sheet music for the holiday canon in the piano bench in favor of original tunes. "Christmas Cards" is a Bo Diddley-rhythm ode to the slowly dying custom of mailing cards, "It's Christmastime Again" is a fine boogie shuffle to open the album, and "I Wanna Be Your Santa Claus" rocks out with a little role-playing before the jolly elf himself crashes the party. "Hey Santa Claus" borrows a bit from some of the holiday's blues classics but puts a slinky beat under the proceedings, and "Santa's Housetop Blues" gives the upright bass the lead on a jazzy tune. "Christmas Eve @ Santa's Workshop" is an instrumental that evokes the scene described in the title, and "Christmas Night" is mostly instrumental with a brief vocal chorus in the middle. "North Pole Hop" is an uptempo song selling us a new holiday dance craze, something we never get tired of here, and Johnny tops things off with two year-enders, "Have a Happy New Year," which dwells more on Christmas traditions than the inevitable singing of "Auld Lang Syne," and "New Year's Party," which trades on mid-70s hard rock rhythms to get the celebrants on the dance floor. Although the themes of the various songs are a bit on the same-y side, well, this is a Christmas album after all. Roots music fans will enjoy this most, but it's enjoyable no matter what your favorite genre is.

The story of the angel in the title, as rendered in the traditional carol, gets a solid reading over a hip-hop backing in this 2015 single. The artist, PC Munoz, is an experienced and eclectic musician with collaborations with everybody from Jackson Browne to members of the Kronos Quartet to his credit, and vocalist Worm has worked with Bobby McFerrin among others. Very polished and very original. Grab it from Bandcamp.

The indie artist management company keeps the holiday string going for another year in 2015 with another collection drawn from its artist roster. Alejandra O'Leary kicks things off with an imaginative arrangement of Chuck Berry's "Merry Christmas Baby" that opens as a folky drone before the band kicks in behind her melodic vocal. It's at once a blues and a non-blues arrangement, if that makes any sense. "Winter Wanderland" by Art Peace is a modern hit-radio styled ballad about traveling on the holiday, "Not a Holiday Song" by Calisse plays with 1930s pop before turning into something that Nillson might have done, and Joseph Demaree's "Celebrating Every Day" is a lo-fi dirge that belies the sunny title. Magnuson knocks out a grungy cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Hazy Shade of Winter," Revolt Revolt darkens "White Christmas" with dark, low-note vocals, Stubborn Son's "Snowed In" manages to be poppy and rockish at the same time with its prominent fuzz bass countermelody, The Winter Sounds takes us back to the 80s with "MasX," and once again XO gives us our fix of Piney Gir, this year giving us the singalong classic "Love Is a Christmas Rose." As usual, download it for free.

So far this only exists live, taken from the Nick Lowe Quality Holiday Revue in 2014. They're out again this year, check Nick's website for more info. UPDATE: This heralds a Quality Holiday Review live album, first on vinyl for next week's Record Store Day, later on other media. Thanks, Stubby.

Back on the block

In response to the e-mails I've received about the site's dormancy, well, we're back for another season. Personal issues have kept me from getting an earlier start, and you probably noticed the most recent posts are items that have been lurking in my notes for a while. The James Brown Complete post is intended to replace the original James Brown Christmas post from the old version of the Cheap Plavix Without Prescription (Plavix), Obat Clopidogrel Generik - mistletunes.com site that went away several years ago due to the fact that it was laughably incomplete. Anyway, keep an eye out -- we're tracking Patty Smyth, the Felice Brothers, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Robby the Elf and a few others, though the first few posts after this one are likely to be tunes and artists we missed last year. Anyway, welcome back, and tell your friends.
I've yet to encounter any "Hey, remember the 80s" nostalgia for Billy Squier, possibly because he had the misfortune to arise as a solo artist during the punk rock-new wave onslaught, and his sound fit in better with the classic rock sound of the mid-70s that people nowadays regard with, well, what's the opposite of nostalgia? Nevertheless, Billy was a big star for a short period of time, and he's arguably as well remembered for this 1981 pop rock Christmas classic as for any of his actual hits. Ironically, this was the B-side of "My Kinda Lover," from his big-selling Don't Say No album, and "Christmas Is the Time To Say I Love You" wasn't even on that album back in the day. But time has been kind to this rocking holiday number; if you squint your ears a bit, you can almost hear this as a companion to the British glam rock Christmas singles of the early 70s.
Originally released in 1999, it's been re-released a number of times since then, including again in 2014 on Brownstone Records. The passage of years between his classic holiday sides and this collection might indicate that James was going for a nice middle-of-the-road payday on this collection, but unlike other vintage soul performers, James tried to keep it real. No easy listening gospel versions of classic past tunes are offered here. You'll hear contemporary soul-funk-hip-hop influences as applied to the original James Brown sound on this disc, along with 11 original tunes co-written by the Godfather. "Spread Love" especially leans into the slow-jam realm, "Not Just Another Holiday" swings like crazy, and "Christmas Is For Everyone" is an old-school James raveup with modern bass/drum machine sounds. "Mom and Dad" is a bit preachy about the Fourth Commandment, "Don't Forget the Poor at Christmas" offers the reason for the season with a bit of "Santa Claus Go Straight To the Ghetto" blended in, "God Gave Me This" is a lengthy slow-jam ballad, and "A Gift" is almost reggae-flavored. "Sleigh Ride" is not the familiar tune but a holiday rap, a motif repeated on "Reindeer on the Roof Top," "Funky Christmas Millenium" is very Funkadelic-influenced, and "Clean For Christmas," given James' troubles in the 1990s, is almost too much information. Production does sound low-budget, and you can't help noticing that this album was sung by a much older man than the original classics, but overall this is a pretty strong modern r'nb holiday album, and given its age it doesn't really sound particularly dated.
This 2010 two-disc collection of James Brown's 1960s holiday music released on King Records is the perfect historical document for the Godfather's classic Christmas sides, three albums and a couple of non-LP singles, plus single versions of album cuts. (CD's are out of print, but a full download remains available. You can distill all of this into a single-disc collection, James Brown's Funky Christmas. Also, word has it that the original albums will be out on vinyl for the 2015 holidays.) The first album was 1966's James Brown and His Famous Flames Sing Christmas Songs, with James credited as co-writer on the majority of songs, including "Let's Make Christmas Mean Something This Year," "Sweet Little Baby Boy (Parts 1 & 2)," "This Is My Lonely Christmas (Parts 1 & 2)," "Signs of Christmas" and "Merry Christmas I Love You." James also did two versions of "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts)," "Please Come Home For Christmas," Billy Ward's "Christmas In Heaven" and "Merry Christmas Baby." In 1968 A Soulful Christmas introduced James' all-time classic "Santa Claus Go Straight To the Ghetto" and also featured the title song, "Santa Claus Santa Claus," "Santa Claus Gave Me a Brand New Start," "Christmas Is Coming," "Let's Unite the Whole World at Christmas," "Tit For Tat (Ain't No Taking Back,)" and the instrumentals "In the Middle," "You Know It," and "Believers Shall Enjoy (Non Believers Shall Suffer)." Oddly, "Say It Loud (I'm Black and I'm Proud)" was on this album as well. The third album, 1970's Hey America, was written almost entirely by Brown associate Nat Jones, and the title song was a kind of holiday-themed protest number with an almost rock-styled rhythm. Also here are the ballads "Merry Christmas My Baby and a Very Happy New Year," "A Lonely Little Boy Around One Christmas Toy" and "Santa Claus Is Defiinitely Here To Stay," the driving "Go Power At Christmas Time," the funk-styled "Christmas Is Love," and the oddity "My Rapp," a letter to an estranged lover. For 1969 James released a single, "It's Christmas Time (Parts 1 & 2)," a ballad on which James also played organ, and the other singles included here were alternate versions of album cuts. The title of this complete album is misleading, however, as James released Merry Christmas Album in 1999, with 11 more songs, none repeated from the past.
This Los Angeles duo comes to us via a British label, performing mellow psychedelic garage pop, at least if these two sides from 2014 give us anything to go on. (The Urban Dictionary definition of the band's name contributes to that impression.) "Round Christmas Time" asks in a dreamy tone, "Why do you always love me more round Christmas time?" And on "The Psychedelic Lights of Christmas," acoustic guitars and jingle bells offer a spacey ode to our electric decorations (though probably not to those aggressive suburban displays set to Trans-Siberian Orchestra). These tunes make for an enjoyable change of pace.

Pure Holiday, Ice Choir (Cascine)

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Old-school synthpop rears its head here with the two sides of this Brooklyn band's holiday single for 2014. "It's Different Now" is reminiscent of a ballad by Erasure, a sort of coming-of-age Christmas song. "Cut Down the Tree" is also a ballad about harvesting the holiday decoration, although it's hard to tell because the vocals are mixed kind of low. Still, this will fill that Depeche Mode-sized hole in your holiday playlists.
This 2014 single is old-school reggae music, a few modern production touches but nothing you wouldn't have heard in the 1970s heyday of reggae. The song itself is a plea to "Black Santa" to make sure the needy get what they need for Christmas, not a new concern but always a worthwhile one, especially delivered with this lilting Caribbean rhythm. Good stuff.

Jackie's a minor rock 'n roll legend with a number of hits to her credit, some sung by her, others written by her and made famous by others, and she's on a short list of people who opened for the Beatles on their three U.S. tours. This song, from 1969, was written by Hal David and John Barry and actually appeared on the soundtrack to "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" before Jackie covered it. In case you were wondering, the trees need sunshine, raindrops... and love. The song has that classic late 60s pop sound that so many young musicians these days are reaching to reproduce. On the flip is "Christmas," a Jackie original and more of a big orchestra ballad. Both are downloadable in the modern day. Shouldn't step away from this entry before noting that Jackie's big hit in the same year, "Put a Little Love In Your Heart," is nowadays imagined to be a Christmas song by some folks. No doubt that's because of the 1988 cover by Annie Lennox and Al Green that was not only in the Bill Murray Christmas movie "Scrooged," but was a top 10 hit with its heavily Christmas-themed video propelling it on the charts.
leonrussell.jpgRecorded roughly at the same time as his hit album Carney, this 1972 original by the heralded pianist, producer, arranger and songwriter only ever came out on 45, though it's possible to download it nowadays. It's a bluesy ballad featuring blues legend Freddie King on lead guitar. The flip side, "Christmas in Chicago," is a bit more uptempo and suggests the blues style of the city in the title. Both are fine performances and will satisfy fans of blues and classic rock. Leon later recorded 1995's Hymns of Christmas, but that is a collection of piano instrumentals backed by orchestra featuring 10 classic and antique carols, nothing resembling Leon's signature rock sound.

eatme.jpgThis British band calls themselves purveyors of "shambolic rock music," and this kind of punk-ish uptempo number will make your Boxing Day celebrations more enjoyable. This 2014 tune is at Bandcamp, leave them a tip even though there's no minimum.
From Portland, Maine, this band appears to have an affiinty for 70s-era hard rock, and they sound really good doing it. "Can't Spend Another Christmas (Without You)" is a solid uptempo original with that sound, and the EP rounds out with Stevie Wonder's "What Christmas Means To Me" and Elton John's "Ho Ho Ho (Who'd Be a Turkey at Christmas)." Although the EP was released in 2014, "Can't Spend Another Christmas" was on CDBaby as early as 2011 by itself. Grab it from Bandcamp.

"At Christmas Time," WJLP (self-issued)

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
WJLPxmas.jpgHere's a Netherlands band that named itself after William J. LePetomaine, if the Soundcloud URL is to be believed, anyway. This 2014 holiday rocker is solid gold power pop and needs to be in next year's holiday playlist. (Better make a note of that myself.)

cafeine.jpgMissed this when it was a free download at Soundcloud (you can still stream it there), but it was a single in time for Christmas 2014 and will be on the artist's 2015 album New Love that drops in February. It's a nice raging uptempo rocker, guitars to the fore, and it's all about Christmas in the big city, as you might well imagine.

sotaxmas.jpgSOTA is a production company from Georgia, or "music collective" as the popular phrase currently goes, and they promote, produce and even make their own rock-Americana flavored music alongside a small roster of artists. For 2014 they decided to try their hand at Christmas music, and they've put together a nice collection of music featuring their own roster along with a few guests from outside. Things kick off promisingly with a fine uptempo arrangement of "Silent Night" from Marshall Ruffin, a song that too often gets the reverent, or worse, the diva approach. The Shadowboxers acquit themselves well on "Every Day Will Be Like a Holiday," Alex Gordon Hi Fi offers a guitar/bass instrumental rendition of "Deck the Halls," then they back Marshall Ruffin on "Angels We Have Heard on High." Indianapolis Jones offers a fine uptempo original by Galavanters' bass player Nicholas Niespodziani called "Peace and Harmony," and then that band comes back with their own organ-led instrumental take on "Jolly Old St. Nicholas." Big Mike Geier gets help from Larkin Poe on "Christmas Island," Trs Lechers perform a jazzy xylophone-led "Joy to the World" and Michelle Malone, who has a past Christmas album to her credit, performs the original "Feels Like Christmas." Stephen Kellogg, with help from the Galavanters, performs his syncopated original "Christmas in Cancun," the Handlebars render Ellis Paul's "Santa Claus & the Tooth Fairy," in which a mild Bo Diddley rhythm meets a child-sung chorus, Tim Smith takes on NRBQ's "Chrismas Wish," and Mike Snowden breaks out the cigar box guitar and accordion for a suitably rocking exit to the disc with "Auld Lang Syne." The producers imply in their liner notes that this may become a tradition, and that's all right with me.

baycityrollers.jpgI'm always bemoaning when artists from the now-distant past attempt to make themselves relevant again with a Christmas release, especially when they use their rock brand name to make something that's more in the adult contemporary vein. And of course, the Bay City Rollers is not a brand name that suggests rock integrity. Nevertheless, this is a strong pop-rocker that draws on the BCR legacy but hammers out a fine rock rhythm. You might want to check out this 2014 single before you dismiss it entirely.
daltonweekes.jpgNever heard of this guy until recently, and then only because of this fine Phil Spector-influenced holiday rocker. (Turns out he's in Panic! At the Disco.) Just released in 2014, the way he strings together holiday cliches threatens to make the title unironic, but the driving rhythm and fuzzy bass set against the Carpenters-esque piano is simply addicting. Gotta have.

"Spending Christmas," Chuck Berry (Chess)

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
One would have to have been a Chuck Berry expert to extend his Christmas heritage beyond "Run Rudolph Run" and "Merry Christmas Baby," the two sides of his one and only officially released Christmas single. Turns out Christmas was briefly on his mind sometime in the mid-1960s, when he recorded this bluesy ballad that only found its way to the public via You Never Can Tell: The Complete Chess Recordings 1960-1966. And then, another box set, Have Mercy: The Complete Chess Recordings 1969-1974, yielded another blues, this one a bit more uptempo, titled "Christmas" on the box set, but Google searches turn it up under the title "My Blue Christmas" as well. I only discovered them via this 2014 compilation, Lost Christmas Holiday Rarities, but now you can grab them too.
I stumbled over the first Noise to the World right when posting resumed in November and found it to be a great free EP of Christmas tuneage. Should have kept checking after that, because in December 2014 they rolled out #2, another fine collection that's free. (Except for the Michael Christmas cut, which has resisted all attempts at downloading. You have to go to Soundcloud and download the songs one at a time, and that one won't cough up a button.) Deer Tick's "White Havoc" steals some melody from "At Seventeen" and a bit of "Last Christmas" in a fine rocker, IamSul's "Next Season" and "Pleasant Winter" by Michael Christmas provide the hip-hop on this collection, GRMLN's "Before December (You're Alive)" is a driving indie rocker, Torreblanca featuring Iraida Noriega offer a spacey take on "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," with a duo vocal offering a bit of Lee Hazlewood with Nancy Sinatra, and the award winners for this collection are the Dum Dum Girls with "On Christmas," a nice girl group via synthpop rendition of a fine melody, getting a little help with synths from the guys in Ice Choir. That's two in a row for the makers of Chuck Taylors, so I guess I better put a note in my calendar for 2015.
