It's snowing where I am. The twinkle lights are up on the trees. I will admit it, I am in the holiday spirit. There is a ton of fantastic holiday music for those who choose to listen. I thought, why not share some with you?
Margo Guryan is a songwriter/arranger from New York. Guryan wrote songs that many pop acts of the 60s recorded. Guryan herself had a lovely voice but refused to tour so her album did not make a big splash when it was released. I recommend checking it out - it is full 60s pop treats. How does this relate to holiday music? Guryan wrote the fantastic 'I Don't Intend to Spend Christmas Without You'. It is a holiday song of longing and a tinge of loneliness.Enjoy!

I am going to 100% honest - I don't know a lot about Baccara. Just the basics really. They are a Spanish Duo from the 70s who sang one heck of a disco/pop hit 'Yes Sir, I can Boogie'. I love this disco hit because it simultaneously makes me dance and laugh out loud. Humour is a good thing. So, why not take a disco break this Tuesday?

Hi All! This is Kim from BebePies. Sorry I missed you last week. I was out of town, and had too much fun at a My Bloody Valentine show. My post was lost to the ether. I figured since I missed last week due to the greatness of My Bloody Valentine, why not share some with you today?!
My Bloody Valentine are a seminal shoegaze band that recorded the hugely influential albums 'Isn't Anything' and "Loveless' in the late 80s and early 90s. It took the band over 20 years to release their 3rd album 'mbv' that came out earlier this year. Many bands that return after a long hiatus release less than stellar albums, but not My Bloody Valentine. 'mbv' is a phenomenal album that perfectly fits into the discography of such a creative band. Below is a video to the band's song 'Only Shallow' which is featured on their 'Loveless' album.

Upset is fun! They just released their first album album 'She's Gone'. If Upset have a familiar sound, it may be because the band features former Best Coast/Vivian Girls drummer Ali Koehler and former Hole drummer Patty Schemel. If you want some quick, enjoyable punk pop tunes to get you through your day, or perhaps accompany you on your walk home after work, you may want to check out Upset.
