Who here is starting to grow tired of Christmas music right about now? It's mid-December. We've all spent the past few weeks being bombarded by Band-Aid, trying not to listen to the annoying din of holiday pop in shopping malls, being driven to the point of near-madness by an endless barrage of Bublé, Carey, Bieber, Ariana and a steady, water-torture-like drip of sleigh bell samples.
But we're not total grinches. We promise.
When our pal @DJ.Waves said she wanted to curate a Christmasy playlist without any actual Christmas music on it this month, we were in. Here, in Volume 8 of SOUND⚡WAVES, you'll be able to enjoy tunes that stoke that festive spirit without making you want to bear claw your ears off the side of your head.
Featuring Bob Dylan, Foo Fighters, Allah-Las, Kikagaku, Mad Season, Chris Cornell, City and Colour, America, The Doors, Radiohead, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Arkells, Temples, First Aid Kit, Kurt Vile, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Dusty Springfield and more.
