A Very Christmas by Moon Cities


I’m a man who loves Christmas music. I’m also a hardline no-Christmas-until-after-Thanksgiving seasonal separator. So the few weeks between Christmas and the new year are filled with wall-to-wall Christmas music for me. Over the years, I’ve amassed quite a collection, and I’ve become something of a connoisseur of original Christmas songs. A good Christmas song has elements of classic Motown, strings, bells, and balances the continuum of joyous and sacred. The lyrics can’t be too generic or cheesy. Sufjan Stevens excels at this—there’s one of his tracks on here, and some tracks from his friends and cronies, as well as 19 other Christmassy tracks that will make you feel right at home for the holidays even if you’ve never heard them before.
