Have Yourself A Merry Indie Christmas

Have Yourself A Merry Indie Christmas is a hand-crafted labour of love from music fan and blogger Kevin McGrath and gathers tracks from all over the planet to raise funds for Crisis at Christmas. Coming in at a colossal 108 tracks this is the perfect indie fans stocking filler ten times over. The contributions include such acts as the phenomenally excellent Swansea Sound (featuring Hue Williams from The Pooh Sticks), The Lilac Time and Dodgy. The quality of the material is high throughout and stand out tracks include Rope Store’s “Never Had Christmas” which sounds like a lost classic from 1973, Jodie Marie who gives us the gorgeous “I Don’t Wanna Be (Alone This Christmas)” and ”The First Snowflake” by The Boy Least Likely To  which is quite simply a work of great beauty.
