Christmas Music I am listening to

A few glimpses of pure awesomeness:

Future of Forestry Advent Christmas EP – This is really fantastic. If you have not bought this yet, you need to. My only complaint may be that they didn’t include any originals. Then again, do you need original Christmas songs? With music this good, I don’t think so. My #1 holiday pick this year.

Sufjan Stevens Songs for Christmas – Pure genius. This music captures the wonder of childlike simplicity, love for Jesus, and hilarious randomness. Lots of music to keep you occupied here. This will become a great tradition for you. Nobody is making music like Sufjan. Go download a few free songs.

The Violet Burning DivineFor fans of the VB, this is a treat. Two words sum up the VB for me – rock and honesty. This is beautiful rock n roll. They’re giving it away for free on their website, or you can support them for $10. I’m a fan of that.

Sojourn Advent Songs – This is a beautiful recording. Sojourn is making great worship music that is very theological, stirring, and well done. Very fresh. Head to their site and download a few free songs as well.

Sleeping At Last – For the past few years SAL has been offering a free Christmas song around Christmas time. Head over here to listen and download. Sleeping at Last makes some of the best music out there. These Christmas tunes are gentle, nostalgic, and beautiful.

  1. A huge +1 to Songs for Christmas. I’ve been loving it since last Christmas!

    I’d give an honorable mention to Jars of Clay’s Christmas Songs, and a few really great tracks from BEC’s X Christmas.
