If you like Christmas music then you’ll love the mp3hugger curated Christmas compilation ‘An Indiecater Christmas’, you can buy it here!
Love the title as much as the song, which is sweet and about as short as its subject. Headlights come from Champaign, which is nice given the bubbly nature of their music. This tune is taken from the soon to be on ebay for thousands Xmas-3 compilation from Kindercore. Probably too late to nab it this side of the big day but it is still worth harvesting for a future family heirloom. You see not only do you get a bunch of tracks but the CD is festooned within the environs of a festive comic book. Venice is Sinking’s heartbreaking effort ‘The Grey Line’ from the collection has already been featured here. ‘Kicker of Elves’ reminds me of that great lost Scottish duo Adventures in Stereo but given that this is a cover of a Guided By Voices number that really doesn’t make a whole lot of sense unless Headlights have deviated vastly from the original. Ah well, who cares once those annoying small people get their just desserts. KD
