Given that it is a pretty niche genre in the first place we won’t be too surprised if you are new to each and every one of these shoegaze Christmas songs. And for the most part the bands involved pin their colours to the mast by not straying too far from their normal haze of guitar feedback and distant vocal backdrops. The Cocteau Twins ‘Frosty The Snowman’ is perhaps the only track to have broken into the mainstream of sorts but even at that it is may be viewed as an off-kilter expose of the much loved children’s Christmas classic. Danish duo the Raveonettes perform a similarly distortion led job on Darlene Love’s ‘Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)’. Not that it is unrecognisable in any way, it just sounds like a beautifully warped piece of vinyl has replaced the high bitrate digital recording. A lot more linear but not at all what you might expect from a Christmas song is Galaxie 500’s epic ‘Listen The Snow Is Falling’ which is a cover of the Yoko Ono track that appeared on the b-side of her husband’s ‘Happy Xmas (War is Over)’ single. Galaxie 500 certainly embellish Ono's original as the 5 minute fade-out provide an electric mesh of rampaging guitars that is unforgettable. It is at once sweet and altogether frightening piece of shoegaze Christmas song writing.
