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.
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.
