For those of you looking for an alternative to Bing Crosby this Christmas, I Surrender Records has prepared a holiday compilation featuring some of the artists on their roster, including We Are The Union, Valencia, Punchline, Vinnie Caruana, and more.
A holiday comp is not a novel idea. There’s the various installments of ‘A Santa Cause’ as well as 2013’s ‘Punk Goes Christmas’ to name two others. And bands like Weezer, Bad Religion, MXPX and The Vandals have dropped entire holiday-themed releases before. That said, there is some fun to be had with ‘I Surrender Sleighs’. Not every song on here is equally strong, but the originals penned by the likes of Valencia, latewaves and Alex Amiruddin & Vinnie Caruana are definitely worth a listen.
I Surrender Sleighs track list:
- How Valencia Stole Christmas – Valencia
