It's Not Like Christmas by Various Artists
Released: Dec 1998
Label: Izumi Records
This esoteric mix of holiday classics (plus a few new seasonal depression pleas) done in euro-accents and indie warbles is the perfect gift for the obscurities-buying indie rocker on your list. We feel certain even they would approve of this twee tree trimming collection from Swedish acts El Perro Del Mar and the Envelopes, and who could refuse to join in on the robust "12 Days of Christmas" caroling with The Joseph & Mary Chain (featuring members of the Futureheads, Field Music and the Golden Virgins.) Not just happy sing-along fun, David Ford's "Have Yourself A Bitter Little Christmas" rings in the X-mas break-up blues for those who have already buckled in for the struggle to make it through December.
