I'll Get A Christmas Present (ég fæ jolagjöf) (Sigur Ros)
Add song to playlist

On pondering the roll of honour that is the greatest Christmas songs ever recorded not many would list an ambient number. But we hope that this list of the ambient Christmas songs will at least offer some food for choice. And with some heavy hitters featured the quality on offer is of a much higher order than you'd expect. Experimental electronic wizards Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada both supply ambient Christmas music of the strangest kind, the former’s ‘Boxing Day’ stretching for nearly 15 minutes and the latter’s ‘Soylent Night’ hinting at traditional church sourced noises. Iceland’s pixies Sigur Ros also get in on the act and although ‘I'll Get A Christmas Present’ is a live recording it still sounds as ethereal as their most well-known studio recordings. Pride of place goes to American Dollar’s ‘War on Christmas’ that crosses the ambient/post-rock divide to offer as much atmosphere as you could expect from any song that decries the Christmas that we've arrived at today.
