HO HO HO.  It’s that time of year again!  To ensure you all have a fun, funky, and festive holiday season, I have hefted off a maximum slab of holiday mixtapes for you.  The first mix is brand new for 2013, and the second mix was originally curated for Leeds Music Scene’s 2010 Advent Calender*.  The suggested dosage is to place these mixes onto two sides of a good-quality C90 cassette tape, pop it in your Walkman, mosey on over to your friend’s Xmas party or your grandma’s Christmas lunch, and blow their minds with the fact that good holiday music actually exists.  Thriving:

In other news, this year has been extremely productive.  Even though you may not have noticed, as I have been taking a break from playing shows, I’m currently putting the finishing touches on writing a load of new songs for an upcoming album**.  Some of you may have heard versions of a few of these songs if you came to my Sonic Cauldron concert at Left Bank Leeds this past April.  I was so pleased to see so many people out that night and to have the opportunity to play alongside some of my favourite fellow Leeds musicians.  Now to get it on wax, my new year’s resolution.

If you scroll down to the next post, you’ll also see I released a few live performance videos this year that I’m pretty proud of.  Have a look, and keep your eye out on Tweets and Facebooks early next year because I haven’t yet released them all into the wild.  If you sign up for the mailing list to (to the right), you’ll be the first to know about it!

Finally, I haven’t just been listening to Christmas music.  Here’s some albums released this year I particularly enjoyed:
> Mice Parade – Candella (FatCat)
> These New Puritans – Field Of Reeds (Infectious)
> Dosh – Milk Money (Graveface)
> Sky Larkin – Motto (Wichita)
> Unknown Mortal Orchestra – II (Jagjaguwar)
> Overseas – S/T (Self-Released)
> Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds – Push the Sky Away (Bad Seed Ltd.)
> Retribution Gospel Choir – III (Chaperone)
> Scout Niblett – It’s Up To Emma (Drag City)
> Pick A Piper – S/T (City Slang)
> Colin Stetson – New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light (Constellation)
> The Appleseed Cast – Illumination Ritual (Graveface)
> Waxahatchee – Cerulean Salt (Wichita)
> Oneohtrix Point Never – R Plus Seven (Warp)
> Sam Amidon – Bright Sunny South (Nonesuch)
> The Field – Cupid’s Head (Kompakt)
> Peals – Walking Field (Thrill Jockey)

If you like this stuff, support these musicians; go to their shows, buy their records and keep on living.

Here’s to 2014!

*** In a completely unrelated note, I also wrote about some beers I drank and enjoyed in 2013.
