Hey Everyone! I hope your day has been filled with family, love, great food, and most importantly great music (duh). We all have our Holiday traditions and my family is no different. Each year we like to watch the holiday episodes of the OC. Chrismukkah anyone?!
Ok ok, don’t tease. So many people think The OC is just a teen soap opera but for me it was my introduction into the indie/alt music scene (Ex: Spoon, Death Cab, Radiohead, Dandy Warhols, Sufjan Stevens, Imogen Heap..I could go on for paragraphs really). Needless to say it’s entertaining and the music is great. I’m not sure where I’m going with this but I wanted to say a HUGE Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you who visit IMHB. I’m grateful for you all and absolutely love sharing music with you! I’ll leave you with one of my favorite Christmas songs (from The OC Christmas Mix of course). Happy Listening 🙂
It’s that time of year again guys! Christmas is weeks away which means most of you are experiencing freezing cold weather, warm cozy blankets, unicorn onesies (Santa, I want one!) and perhaps a hot beverage? I live in Florida so I am wishing that I was right there freezing with you..while wearing shorts and choking on humidity (ok it’s not THAT bad).
Hey guys! So last year I did a “25 Days of Christmas” post-a-day thing and this year I had a really hard time finding indie Christmas music that I didn’t post last year…so I decided to forgo that idea this year. Instead I made a mix of the songs I posted last year (in case you weren’t following IMHB then, you can have a listen!) mixed in with some new ones I found! I hope you like it! Merry Christmas/Happy Birthday Baby Jesus and thanks for being awesome!! Happy Listening!!
PS: I made this mix on YouTube so it will automatically skip to the next track when you start listening!
Yesterday Justin Bieber released his very first Christmas Album “Under the Mistletoe” (please excuse me while I scream with joy “EEEEEKKKKK!”). Yes I know this is an Indie Music blog but hey, I’ve got the fever..BIG TIME (it should be renamed the Bieber Epidemic if you ask me!). I don’t have the album yet but I have watched all the webisodes and sneak peaks I could find on YouTube. The album’s going to feature a whole bunch of such as: Usher, Boyz 2 Men, Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes, and the Band Perry. My favorite Christmas album ever since it came out in 2000 was always Christina Aguilera’s “My Kind of Christmas” mainly because she is the best (in my opinion) female vocalists of my generation..regardless of some not so classy tendencies of hers. Anyways I figure this Bieber Christmas album will be my new “My Kind of Christmas” because Biebs is the equivalent to Christina in the way that he is, again in my opinion, the best male vocalist of this generation (boy’s got range!). I saw a commercial yesterday that Target is selling the album for $9.99….no idea how long that will last so go NOW and get i, I am certainly planning to!! And check out the first music video from the album called “Mistletoe” below (I bet Selena wasn’t too happy about her look-a-like in the vid!)
