Christmas presence

Pins - Kiss Me Quickly (It's Christmas)
In which the wiry Mancunians calm it down a little for the season and buy some sleigh bells. A little Nancy Sinatran, a little Glasvegan (especially the festive angle), a little drowsy.

Benjamin Shaw & Fighting Kites - This Christmas (I Just Want To Be Left Alone)
Idiosyncratic lo-fi folkie miserablist and surf-post-rockers team up for expectedly introverted slowcore from the house of Audio Antihero. Pay what you like on Bandcamp, all proceeds to Shelter.

Nature Set - Edward
Not strictly about Christmas apart from some fake snow in the video and a little bit at the end, but that never held Stop The Cavalry back. For the most part it's a sultry stomp with plenty of dank depth from the increasingly intriguing Sheffield outfit. John Steed stars in the video.

MJ Hibbett & The Validators - The Flashing Santa
The traditional Vlads yuletide greeting, in which this year the modern malaise of the fancy lighting decorated house exterior is considered.
