Christmas From a High Horse Mixtape


After at least five years being brutally raped in the ears by Christmas music at the retail job I used to have, I’ve usually stayed away from listening to too much of it. Today I’ve opted to listen to The Selecter, which has made me more cheerful and festive than any Christmas tunes could. However, I will concede that not everyone else in the world is a grinch like me, and you may still like to have a Christmassy alternative, so we will provide that service. Rather than expand on my 2009 Christmas mix, I’ve opted to craft a brand new one.

Stay tuned for Top Albums of 2011 lists from both Laura and me.
