It would be simple to dedicate your Christmas music experience to the produce of the major music markets like the UK and US but that would be to deny yourself the delights of what the rest of the world has to offer. Why complain about the same old stuff every December when this playlist alone showcases Christmas songs from 15 different countries. And while all of the songs are familiar you are unlikely to have experienced such a collection of quirky and unusual renditions.

Northern Europe is well represented and given the snowy landscapes that pervade up there over the holidays it makes sense that some of their musicians are featured. Sweden’s Magnus Carlsson is a case in point with his lullaby like version of John Lennon’s ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’. The atmospherics are just perfect as the air you expel slows to a small cloud of icy breath. Denmark’s Tiger Baby (sounding like London’s St. Etienne) are equally adept at winter dynamics on ‘This Christmas’ which features electro pulses like mounds of fluffy snow.

Mexico might not be capable of offering the traditional setting of frosted windows and hanging icicles but that matters not a jot when Moderatto are able offer a rocked-up version of ‘Jingle Bells’ that is deserving of a thousand cigarette lighters in the cold night air. Christmas it seems is just as special around the world as it is in your own abode each year.
