Tonight : DJ Kishka Saves Christmas!

In just a few mere hours we are getting out of work and heading to The Happy Dog to experience the cultural phenomenon that is a DJ Kishka Happy Hour. This evening with a nice holiday twist he will be performing live "How The Kishka Saved Christmas". We've been looking forward to this for weeks. You can get some great info on him here.

For the last week or so we were trying to compile some of the best Holiday mp3's in that have come across ours this season and as luck would have our work was done for us with this mix complied by Verbicide Magazine that was in our inbox today.

Here you go   for sure to be check out the tracks from Slow Club, Deer Tick and Summer Camp

Let's Not Talk About That Four Letter Word On Everyone's Mind...

A friend of ours said this on facebook today "Please don't complain that you hate the snow if you choose to live in Cleveland. It's like a sailor complaining he hates the water".

Could not have said it any better ourselves, on to a song that has been brightening our day since we first heard if a few days ago it's called "If I was" by Young Rebel Set who hail from the U.K., just like Mumford Sons, they a grittier more raw version of those chaps.  Enjoy!

December means it's time for Christmas Indie Rock!

Rabbit, Rabbit everyone :) 

We love this time of year for music, as you hear all of the golden oldies like Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Burl Ives etc. and then you hear Christmas-inspired tunes from all your current and past indie artists. One such track that has already caught our attention this season, is Crystal Antlers "10,000 Watts" which you have most likely enjoyed in one of the latest commercials from Target. You can get it for free from HERE, along with other holiday inspired tracks from Bishop Allen, Best Coast w/ Wavves, Coconut Records, Blackalicious and Dark My Love.

If you just want that song here you go - enjoy*
