Leave it to surfing songsmith Jack Johnson and his impressive roster of Brushfire bards to help us stay cozy during the cold winter season. This Warm December is the second installment in Brushfire Records’ holiday compilations. It opens with ALO’s Zach Gill crooning in his throaty baritone over a playful ukulele as a rootsy banjo and parlor piano join a brushed drumkit and melodica. It sounds like an intimate living-room jam. Later, Rogue Wave indie-fies “Jingle Bell Rock” with Zach Rogue singing through gallons of reverb as his band plays slide guitar and sleigh bells. Mojave 3/Slowdive frontman Neil Halstead’s “Home for Christmas” is the star on this tree. His whisper-sung harmonies hover over a warbling Hammond B3 organ as nylon-string guitars pluck and strum underneath him with warm, organic tones. Of course the party’s host, Jack Johnson, comes through with two tracks: first the hushed, beachy folk-rock tune “In the Morning” and then “Angel (Holiday),” a two-minute love song with an everlasting sentiment.
I am really digging this album. Love the older vibe of some of the songs like Christmas Rock. This is a wonderful album. Also, If you like discovering new Christmas songs here on itunes, I just heard one of the most amazing songs ever called "My Christmas Coloring Book" by Buddy Mix so you should go check that one out also. Now I'll we need is some hot chocolate and some marshmallows!
Second time around with warm christmas jamz!
After listening and observing, I am impressed. Although I think my taste turns slightly more toward the first volume, this one is pretty complimentary. Glad to see some fresh G. Love tunes on here! Probably my favorites on the album along with Rogue Wave's tropic jam version of Jingle Bell Rock and Zee Avi's very interesting twist on Frosty The Snowman! Good Job Brushfire Artists! I recommend the buy!
Winter Swell Blues - song cuts off
I downloaded "Winter Swell Blues," great song, but it ends abruptly. Cut off the last 15 seconds. Waiting to see if iTunes will fix the problem, or give me a refund.
