ARCADE CHRISTMAS!!

Arcade Fire’s 2002 Christmas Album was recorded well before the band’s
first EP and the full length Funeral and never officially released. It
was recorded at a party in Win and Régine’s apartment, and Win claims
that he is not singing in the recordings. Instead, his friends imitate
his voice. Copies were distributed to friends and family of the
band…

The album features a quirky mix of holiday covers and early versions
of original songs some of which were later released as part of
Arcade Fire EP and Funeral.

1. “Chestnuts Roasting” 3:09
2. “Oh Holy Night” 4:30
3. “Jinglebell Rock” 1:19
4. “A Very Arcade Xmas” 8:09
5. “It Clouded Fully (Brendan)” 1:01
6. “The Spartans (Brendan)” 2:57

Read a great review from Aquarium Drunkard, about a Xmas Soul compilation called “In the Christmas Groove” [DOWNLOAD] , didn’t have to listen to more than 2 tracks before she got put in the “MUST HAVE” category. Definitely a good listen for the holidays.

The cover art is a knock-off of James Brown superb funk LP ‘In the Jungle Groove’. Its a solid 9, them boots are too!
