Amy Lynn is honoring the holiday season with The Honey Men joining her for a rendition of “O Holy Night”. The track can be downloaded for free but after streaming it and it catches your holiday spirit, please use the “Name Your Prince” option as a means to show some support. Thank you.
Instead of making this a full Muffs song, Kim Shattuck and Roy McDonald decided to make a Christmas song on their own and give it their names, so here is their version of “Twas The Night”, a quick and easy rocker of a holiday song. Enjoy this.
IF you feel there aren’t enough hip-hop songs during the holiday season, maybe this could become this generation’s “Christmas In Hollis”. “12 Bars Of Christmas” brings together Imperial, Sojourn, Kinetic, Sareem Poems, and Sivion and insures you understand the season in a pleasant way.
Lost Toys Records are the label that will be releasing the debut album from The Grubby Mitts on March 9th. The title for it is What The World Needs Now Is The Grubby Mitts, please make a note of it and if you’re unsure as to why, you’ll want to have a listen to this. The Grubby Mitts is a project that has taken Andy Holden eight years to finish and now you’ll have to wait until late winter to hear it in full.
If Santa Claus has ho’s, does he keep tabs of them in different area codes? Mr. Ivory Snow unleashes his dialogue on the manner in “Santa Got Hoes”, his sleigh is a pumpin’ pimpmobile. Gyrate on that, Mrs. Claus and go to strokin’ on your own, girl.

Vocalist Kilo Kish released her Across EP earlier this year but now has a Christmas recording to end 2014 on a good note. This one is called “002: Attempted Holiday Readings”, where her approach is taking various Christmas stories and combining them for listening, perhaps near a fireplace or anywhere that may be comfortable.
For 2015, there is an Across Remixes EP in the works and will be out in January.
There seems to be a lot of pop artists making themselves known as of late, it must me a sign. Either people are getting sick of what is being passed off as pop, or… maybe there isn’t another reason. Or perhaps she just wants to show what she has to offer without trying to be like anyone else. The “she” I’m referring to is Veronika Jokel, who has covered Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas” and turned into something with a pop flavor for a new generation, still retaining the power of the original. Her second EP will be released in the new year, so be on the look out for Black Magic. Check out her other songs posted on her official Soundcloud page.
Another Christmas song is here at ThisIsBooksMusic.com, I do not know what is happening to me but if you are someone who is feeling the holiday season or even deep and crisp and even, check out a version of “The First Noel” by singer Rachel Kerr. This is a very rendition and it is a part of her Christmas album, A Christmas Gift, which you can download for free by heading to RachelKerrMusic.com.
There are many holiday classics, you should know them all by now but The Hunts have chosen “O Holy Night”. If the group sound like they have a family vibe, you have that right for they are brothers and sisters: brothers Josh, Jonathan, Jordan, Justin, and Jamison and twin sisters Jenni and Jessi, who range between 16 and 23 years old. While the group have an EP out now, this song is exclusive and is not on there, so check out their version of “O Holy Night”.
It may seem a bit like an odd choice for Audio Fidelity to remaster and release this album on vinyl, but if every Christmas album needs to be on vinyl, then this will mark its first appearance in the format. I speak of The Christmas Attic album, which has consistently sold since its original 1998 release, and this time it will be out as a double LP, due to the 73 minute length of the original. This pressing is being remastered by Kevin Gray and will be pressed by Quality Record Pressings, complete with a 12-page 4-color 12×12 insert. The new pressing will be released on October 28th, and can be pre-ordered from MusicDirect.com.
