bloodshot records' 13 days of xmas (coloured vinyl LP, £17.50) due 01-12-2017label: bloodshot
A you-guessed-it 13-song compilation of off-kilter original Christmas songs and unlikely covers by Bloodshot artists and friends like Murder By Death, Jon Langford, Kelly Hogan and Ha Ha Tonka. The collection runs the gamut of garage rock, doo-wop, honky tonk, surf and more. From the traditional to the subversive there's something for everyone's stocking. The people have been barkin' up our chimney about a holiday release for a long time and we finally pulled up our stockings and got tinkering in the workshop.
