The 24 Days of Business: Day 8 - Turtles Have Short Legs; Blue Christmas

Full “band name” is actually Turtles Have Short Legs, Not For Walking - and is yet another name used by Josh Jacomet for his bizarre punk creations. His song this year is a noisy, fuzz-filled cover of “Blue Christmas”. I look forward to Josh’s submissions every single year, and this one’s no different. Don’t skip it, I seriously love this song!

Josh has a Soundcloud page (with nothing on it, but maybe if you bug him..), and a Facebook if you want to shout at him.

Christmas Business has lost a bit of traction in the last few days, so please share a link to the album around. Thanks!

The 24 Days of Business: Day 7 - Josh Elliot - There’s Something Warm About Christmas

Today’s “24 Days” comes from Saint John, New Brunswick’s Josh Elliot, with this acoustic song that he wrote himself, called There’s Something Warm About Christmas. It’s an upbeat winter feel-good track, so give it a listen and lift your spirits.

If you like this, Josh has got a Reverbnation profile with some other tunes, as well as a Twitter and Facebook page if you’d like to let him know what you think. 

Please continue to spread Christmas Business with anyone you think who might enjoy it!

The 24 Days of Business: Day 6 - The Reconciling Grave - Christmas Morning

The Reconciling Grave is full of acoustic/instrumental/experimental/electro jams - the work of Brent Lees. Brent has always supported A Raw Rock Christmas under various names and aliases, so it’s about time I gave him a proper shoutout. 

Check out his Bandcamp page for a ton of other music of various styles.  

Christmas Business is slowly making its way up: #27 on Bandcamp’s Christmas charts. Keep sharing folks! I’ll have physical cd updates in a few days.

The 24 Days of Business: Day 5 - Up n Adam; Let It Snow

Up n Adam is the synth/uke project of Adam Stutsman from Grand Rapids, Michigan. His first song on Christmas Business is a grainy ukulele cover of Let It Snow, which he fittingly calls his “Snow-Fi version”.

He’s got a Bandcamp page if you’re into getting some new tunes (and I think he’s got his own Christmas EP coming shortly), as well as a Tumblr and Twitter if you want to tell him how cute he is much you enjoyed his songs.

We’ve gotten Christmas Business at #28 on the top Christmas albums on Bandcamp, please continue to share so we can do even better!

The trio of Gavin, Adelle, and Theresa come from Halifax, Nova Scotia, and are all still in high school! They’ve used their very musical minds to turn Sufjan Steven’s “Did I Make You Cry On Christmas? (Well, You Deserved It!) into a faster acoustic jam.

They’re all on Twitter, too: Gavin, Adelle, Theresa.

The 24 Days of Business: Day 2 - Mathematical; Christmas at the Zoo

Mathematical, also known as The Schematics, is the lo-fi indie project of Erik Peterson, gets today’s 24 Days spotlight with his cover of The Flaming Lips’ “Christmas at the Zoo”.

This is my personal favorite song on the album, and I hope you all enjoy, too. You can get more Mathematical/Schematics at http://schematics.bandcamp.com/, or contact Erik via his Twitter to let him know what you thought.
