Un-Christmas songs (part1) Mixtape

8 Jan

Now Christmas is all done and dusted it’s either the most appropriate time, or the most inappropriate time to let you know about Un-Christmas songs (part 1) mixtape from the blog John Kell vs Satan.

The mix actually popped up online before Christmas but managed to slip through the net here at Hi-Life Companion Towers, due to excessive levels of sloe gin! But we could not let you miss this treat, as alongside The Hi-Life Companion with Brockweir Winter Reverie, our reflective take on the festive season, you can catch 17 tracks including The Just Joans, Low, The Wave Pictures with Darren Hayman, Shrag, Slow Club, Erin McKeown and Gruff Rhys.

You can also find another seven Christmas related mixes on John Kell vs Satan blog. Thanks to John for including us!
