Sharing the Joy: New and Different #ChristmasMusic

The Senti-Mentals - ‘You Show Me Yours At Xmas’

Escaping the Christmas classic cliché, The Senti-Mentals release ‘You Show Me Yours At Xmas’, a seasonal single in the tradition of Slade, Mud, Shaky and Wizzard. Paul Eccentric and John Dobinson have come together to form a punk poet meets 50s doo-wop duo that have created the perfect Christmas office party sing-along. The single is accompanied by a brilliant animated video mocking the anti-hero in his attempt to pull anything with a pulse.

Jon McDevitt – ‘Father Christmas’

From creating the theme tune to the Channel 5 series ‘A Different Life’ to selling 2000 unsigned albums with his original band Geist, McDevitt isn’t a complete stranger to the music industry. Now the Christmas sing-along ‘Father Christmas’, due to be released 25th November, blends influences from The Smiths and Dexys Midnight Runners amongst others, to form an easy listen seasonal single.

Homesick Mick – ‘Prisoner To The Past’

If you’re a fan of The Pogues ‘Fairytale Of New York’ (who isn’t) this could be one for you. It’s warm and festive and frankly, you could imagine it on your local’s jukebox and hearing your dad hum it.

Always in spirit...
