The holidays can be a harrowing time for people who like music that doesn’t suck. There are so, so, SO many bad seasonal tunes out there, enough to drive a person insane. SO, in lieu of a useless chocolate advent calendar, I thought we could do a MUSICAL advent calendar leading up to 12.25 in which we give you one track per day that is either 1. very good, or 2. so bad that it becomes very good.
We’re getting into the final stretch here, you guys, but to ME, it doesn’t feel like it at all! Today is a balmy sixty degrees in Brooklyn, with some disgusting tropical-feeling downpour to boot, so it only feels fitting that we go with a Christmas-in-the-southern-hemisphere vibe by way of Auckland’s Lucky Boy^ – “New Zealand’s Christmas Tree” is a perfectly summery way to get into the holiday spirit, so I suggest you do that RIGHT NOW:
