Low - Christmas

I meant to post this record earlier in the month so it had some time to sink in, but that didn't happen and in true Christmas fashion, I am waiting until the last minute. I'm ok with that though because whether you get this record today or sometime deep in July, these songs remain fantastic and could be enjoyed through out the entire year. For this, Minnesota Slowcore giants Low put their stamp on some Christmas tunes in a way only they could. Unlike so many other holiday records that work well for parties and family gatherings, this has always felt a bit more personal as if it's just for the individual listening to it at that very moment. I sort of feel that way about all Low material actually. Something about these songs has a distinct night time feel. Maybe you can enjoy them tonight with a nice seasonal beverage by the fire. Or, if you are me, in your parents basement while you drink your fathers beer. Merry Christmas everyone!

Re-Up: Various Artists - A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector

I posted this one last December, but it was removed. Here it is again because tomorrow is Christmas and this is the quintessential Christmas album.
