Come one and come all for another gift in the Fresh New Music blog, just in time for Christmas...free .mp3s! These are perfect for those who like to get into the Holiday spirit but are tired of the same old tunes. Take a moment to check out and download these great Christmas tracks that range from beautiful indie-folk, raging psychedelia and unadulterated no-nonsense rock 'n' roll. playbutton_triplemJon Troast "The Last Needle" 52h4_JonTroastRecorded in Nashville this fall during the sessions for his forthcoming Living Room album, singer-songwriter Jon Troast delivers a heartfelt folk-tinged ballad filled with love and longing during the Christmas season. Jon Troast's new full-length album Living Room drops January 19, 2010.
No musician [including Radiohead and Bruce Springsteen] has proved more ingenious at staying ahead of the economic paradigm shift than Wisconsin singer/songwriter Jon Troast. - World Magazine

playbutton_triplemVandaveer "The Little Drummer Boy" playbutton_triplemVandaveer "Silent Night" playbutton_triplemVandaveer "Auld Lang Syne" 52h4_Vandaveer1These three beautifully frail holiday gems from the DC-based indie-folk duo Vandaveer (aka Mark Heidinger and Rose Guerin) were originally recorded and released in 2007 for their EP titled  "VNDVR - XMSEP" Vandaveer's recent album Divide & Conquer (on Supply & Demand Music) is in stores now.
Superb. Vandaveer’s Divide & Conquer avoids the sophomore slump by miles and miles. - POPMATTERS

playbutton_triplemCracker "Merry Christmas Emily" 52h4_cracker1_1Back in 2001 Cracker co-founders David Lowery and Johnny Hickman originally wrote and recorded their holiday track “Merry Christmas, Emily” as an ode to ex-girlfriends everywhere for their Forever album. When asked about the origins of the song Johnny admits that this “was written in about an hour... both of us laughing our asses off in Tucson drunk. All the places mentioned [in the song] we were stopping at for drinks all day... In THOSE days,” he laughed. You can also view Cracker's (self-admitted "low-budget") video of "Merry Christmas, Emily" here. Cracker's most recent full-length effort Sunrise In The Land Of Milk And Honey (on 429 Records) is in stores now.
Sunrise In The Land Of Milk And Honey may be Cracker's strongest record to date, with punk- and glam-fueled tunes jostling alongside the band's hooky pop-Americana mainstays. - BILLBOARD

playbutton_triplemThe Buffalo Killers "Run Run Rudolph" playbutton_triplemThe Buffalo Killers "Christmas Time" Recorded back in December of 2006 as part of their WOXY.com Lounge Acts performance the Cincinnati-trio Buffalo Killers are offering up these two wonderfully manic holiday covers [one of Chuck Berry's "Run Run Rudolph" and the other "Christmas Time (Is Here Again)" a lesser known number from The Beatles' 1967 Christmas fan club flexi-disc]. Buffalo Killer's most recent full-length effort Let It Ride (on Alive Records) is in stores now.
52h4_buffalokillers The Buffalo Killers sound like the bastard sons of the James Gang and the Black Crowes. It’s organic, dripping with down home funk, oozing with soul, draped in grittiness and filled with tasty, but not overwhelming guitar licks. The band’s sophomore set, Let It Ride, hits on all cylinders and will definitely require repeat listenings. – Real Detroit Weekly
For more info on Buffalo Killers go to: www.alive-totalenergy.com Our friends at Pavement PR wanted to share a few holiday-themed mp3 chestnuts from some of the remarkable talents they've had the pleasure to help out this year. Enjoy!
