Little & Ashley and Sleepy Rebels Spread Christmas Cheer


Christmas time is upon us, which for some means eggnog and carols. We here at Modern Mystery cannot supply you with eggnog, but we can give you the music to brighten up your holiday season.

Little & Ashley, whose music you’ve likely heard in commercials for Amazon’s Kindle, released a dynamite Christmas EP, entitled Winter Night, last month. The title track from that EP is currently available for free download via Amazon’s 25 Days of Christmas, as are a number of other wonderful holiday ditties.

But wait, there’s more! NY based band Sleepy Rebels also dropped a Christmas record this holiday season. The full-length LP, entitled Bah! Humbug!, is filled with original tunes worth adding to your collection. One such tune, “California Christmas,” is available for free download HERE. The band also shot a video for their song “Sweet Things,” which I’ve included below.

Fauxbois Offer Up Free Holiday Song


Boise’s Fauxbois have a Christmas treat for you. On the heels of their album Carry On, these lo-fi indie kids have an original Christmas song to depress your holiday spirit. But hey, it’s free! (Click here)

The band is also hammering out a national tour, but have released a few Pacific Northwest dates, along with an appearance at SxSW. They are touring in support of Carry On, out now on Seattle based Spark & Shine Records. “Soft acoustic guitar riffs and a chorus of voices wrap their arms around melancholy lyrics anchored by Mayer’s sweet and bittersweet vocals,” Boise Weekly.
