An Indiecater Christmas 2009December 28, 2009
Ahh another Christmas over and I can finally find some time to catch up on all of the new Christmas tunes! The ever reliable Indiecater has put together another set of stunning tunes and quite a few absolutely breathtaking….so if you have just finished your leftover turkey sandwiches do take care!
Some tunes from groups that have appeared on previous compilations and in particular Adam and Darcie‘s It Came Upon A Midnight Clear is jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Some new groups as well and I will be following Oldfolks Home and their electronica tunes for some time to come! You can stream each of those tunes below as well as get the download for Standard Fare’s Tinsel Politics.
As I have done in previous compilation posts- just a few thoughts on each…
The Garlands – Christmas Song Bells galore and great female vocals.
Candy Claws – Snowdrift Wish Unmistakable sublime electro and great harmonies.
Loxsly – Mrs. Kris Kringle Hilarious lyrics- slow start but the horn section at the end is excellent.
Adam and Darcie – It Came Upon A Midnight Clear Subtle instrumentation which supplements the gorgeous vocals- both solo and harmonies simply outstanding.
Allo Darlin’ – Baby, It’s Cold Outside Great female vocals and lyrics with good array of instruments incl ukulele and rattle.
Woodpigeon – Little Nemo Great male harmonies.
Boca Chica – Snow Angels Female vocals with subtle drumming and some nice harmonies further in.
Oldfolks Home – We Don’t Cry At Christmas Feck me- a great tune with subtle electro, sampling and excellent vibe.
Betty & The Cavaleros – Hey! I’m Your Gift Today Bossa-nova funk with a superb female vocal.
Standard Fare – Tinsel Politics Boppy start with drums and good rock vibe.
Sunset – New York Love Great array of instruments and some good harmonies.
I Hate You Just Kidding – It’s Fun To Do Bad Things Subtle male vocals and harmonies.
Sweet Jane – Silent Night Great reverb and pounding bass drum with deep pitched female vocals-oh yeah! Electro choir at end in a shoegaze haze makes it a great ending!
As the 12 days of Christmas aren’t over just yet- head over to Indicater and get the tunes for €6- the best money spent next to the acid indigestion tablets after all of the feasting!
