It's Not Like Christmas

I just stumbled upon this on the I-tunes store and thought the previews sounded pretty great so I bought it. It’s from 2006 and it’s basically a compilation abum of some pretty great bands (a lot of which I have never heard of) covering some famous Christmas songs and some originals too. I love Christmas (maybe even more than I love Halloween) and while we are still a good two months away I really just had to have this! I don’t know there’s just something about Christmas that makes me feel so happy and peaceful. Anyways, here’s the tracklist and some samples:

1. Duels – “Do You Hear What I Hear?”

2. Iain Archer – “Little Drummer Boy”

3. David Ford – “Have Yourself A Bitter Little Christmas”

4. The Late Greats – “Sleigh Ride”

6. Amusement Parks On Fire – “The Day It Snowed” (feat. Leila Moss)
