Thanksgiving is over. It’s December. It is now morally appropriate to begin the Christmas season.
A lot of great bands put out Christmas albums, from the corniest white bread bands to the hippest indie rockers. This season, Los Campesinos! joins the likes of Sun Kil Moon, Sufjan Stevens, Ted Leo & Aimee Mann as people who could not resist the allure of Christmas music. That’s why it’ll always be a great holiday for even the most secular music fan — the songs, even the old standards, are outstanding. No other celebration has such a high quality tradition of music. It’s the closest thing we have to a music holiday.
“When Christmas Comes” comes to us in advance of LC!’s Christmas EP. You can stream it now on Pitchfork Advance.
