You need sites like Yuleplay to remind you all about all the Christmas music you may have missed over the years. In this case a batch of indie cool from Christmas 2012. Everyone knows the festive songs that Bing and John Lennon sing but have you heard Manchester’s indie underground heroes Pins and their wispy delight ‘Kiss Me Quickly (It's Christmas)’? Thought not, but then there is no reason why you can’t feel just as cool over the holidays as you do for the rest of the year. Catwalk are another crutch in your mission to avoid descending into kitschy partying over the 12 days as they take the Chipmunks song and turn it into something that Phil Spector might have done if he’d jettisoned his talented army of girl groups. Ex Cops are equally brazen in contemporising Paul McCartney’s lavish synth laden gem called ‘Wonderful Christmastime’ from the late 1970’s. With these tunes under your arm you can readily ditch that reindeer jumper and join a society not suckered into the mainstream each December.
