Mailbox Music: Christmas Edition...

Free music has been a rising theme in the world lately - at least the one i live in. Bands have been experimenting with giving away creations in order to simply get their music out to more people. And what better time of year for this generosity than the Christmas season. i got a few leads in my inbox the other day that lead me to some free holiday downloads:

Frontier Ruckus - Driving Home, Christmas Eve
and a video

The Gougers - Just Because It's Christmas
here's the page link

Also, Hayes Carll's folks sent word that if you join his Lost Highway mailing list by December 17th, you'll get a link to download his festive tune I'm Grateful for Christmas This Year (on the 17th, naturally).

And while we're in the spirit here, i thought i'd share a few more Christmas tunes with you. i, of course, have many more... traditional Christmas songs in my collection, but just because it's a holiday doesn't mean i will forgo my usual posting standards nor step too far out of my preferred genre realm.

Randy Rogers Band - Please Come Home For Christmas
Old 97's - Here It Is Christmas
Fire Apes - Last Christmas
Asylum Street Spankers - Mele Kalikimaka
Bright Eyes - Blue Christmas

Merry Christmas
