Your Guide to New Christmas Tunes That Arenâ€™t Boring AF
Youâ€™ve probably been hearing all the Christmas classics as you wander around the mall looking for a radical gift for your BFF, but letâ€™s face it â€” sometimes hearing your parentsâ€™ The Carpenters Christmas album can be boring AF, and as much as we all appreciate (and know every word of) Mariah Careyâ€™s â€œAll I Want For Christmas,â€ a girl can only handle so much.
These new Christmas tracks from some pretty cool chicks will be sure to get you in the spirit, but keep you from losing your mindâ€¦
L.E.J. – â€œGame of Bellsâ€
Besides being a cool new version of the classic, â€œCarol of the Bells,â€ this video is a pretty sick rendition of the mannequin challenge thatâ€™s been going on â€” but inside a Christmas party! And bigger bonus, the tune is based on the â€œGame of Thronesâ€ theme. Check the video below, and download their Holiday EP, Christmas Hors Dâ€™oeuvre.
The Regrettes – â€œMarshmallow Worldâ€
The Regrettesâ€™ cover of Bing Crosbyâ€™s â€œMarshmallow Worldâ€ will give you similar swinging vibes as the classic, â€œRockinâ€™ around the Christmas Tree,â€ except itâ€™s way cooler. This one has both rockinâ€™ guitar, and jamminâ€™ sax thatâ€™ll have you dancinâ€™ around that tree spillinâ€™ your hot cocoa in no time.
Leah Nobel – â€œChristmas in My Mindâ€
Feel less alone, slow it down and get sentimental with Leah Nobelâ€™s â€œChristmas in My Mind,â€ which echoes the sentiment of â€œEverything is going to be fineâ€ â€” Â something that we all need to try and convince ourselves as we bid adieu to 2016. Leahâ€™s upcoming EP, â€œRunning in Borrowed Shoesâ€, due out in 2017 â€” is a group of songs based on a hundred interviews with people of a wide array of background and personalities, and will likely be as reflective and personal as this Christmas tune.
Whissell – â€œAll I Ever Get for Christmas is Blueâ€
If torch songs are more your thing rather than shaking your tush while baking, then get â€œblue-syâ€ with Whissellâ€™s â€œAll I Ever Get for Christmas is Blue.â€ This one is definitely not for the faint of heart, as it will remind you of basically anything (or anyone) in your life that you miss and wish you had with you under that tree.
Christmas Queens 2 – 30 Song Christmas Compilation Album
As a sequel to last yearsâ€™ very successful â€œChristmas Queensâ€ album, the queens from â€œRu Paulâ€™s Drag Raceâ€ are back at it and have released a thirty song compilation album. This oneâ€™s bound to have you giggling and probably not missing any of those other lame Christmas standards youâ€™ve heard too many times. So get into that holiday spirit and check out Alaska Thunderfuckâ€™s â€œChr!$Tm@$ $Uxâ€ and bring on the Christmas LOLs!
