The Aux – Christmas Isn’t the Root of My Problems (2018) – Christmas Underground

Self ReleasedBuy: Bandcamp (NYOP) Sometimes I do feel like I’m writing about the same bands, year after year. Well, that is a great problem to have, as so many of the bands I dig keep on putting out great Christmas music! I haven’t hit Mike Nevin’s The Aux releases every single year, but I am […]

Merry Thursday December 27th – Christmas Underground

Well, I probably should have posted something earlier, but the holidays are always extremely busy. With getting ready for Christmas, preparing for company, and traveling, it can be hard to find time for the one thing that I try to do all year… write about cool Christmas tunes. I found a bunch more too. Whether […]

Dearnley “Christmas in a Strip Club” (2018) – Christmas Underground

Self ReleasedBuy: Bandcamp (NYOP) David W. Dearnley has managed to take a provocative title, which many a song relies on exclusively, and surprises the hell out of me.

Dream Whale CreativeBuy: iTunes | Amazon MP3 | Amazon.uk MP3 | Amazon.de MP3 Nashville’s Bien have been recording Christmas tunes since back in 2016, but until now, they have all been standards. “Bells, Bells, Bells” however, is particularly excellent in both song choice and performance.

Kay Proudlove “Giftcard” (2018) – Christmas Underground

Self ReleasedBuy: Bandcamp “Christmas Eve / When everything is magical and desperate.” That might be my favorite line of the year.

Delicious Clam RecordsBuy: Bandcamp THEY ARE BACK! Sheffield’s Delicious Clam Records is back with Vol. 3, and while it is a brisk 2-track affair, wow are they fantastic!

Modern Studies “It’s Winter” (2018) – Christmas Underground

Fire RecordsBuy: Bandcamp On occasion, folks have thought this might be a Scottish blog. I take that as a great compliment, and I fully understand why one might assume this. I LOVE SCOTTISH BANDS.
