Today we are breaking all of our own self imposed rules. At Breaking More Waves we adhere to a strict one blog a day policy, ensuring that we do not over deluge those who subscribe to our humble interweb publication.
However if you are a subscriber you may have noticed that right now things have changed. There have already been two blogs, this is the third and there is one more to come. The reason ? Quite simply, we have a lot to cram in this side of Christmas and it isn’t all going to fit unless we break the rules. So apologies, but we think it’s worth it.
And talking of Christmas, it’s about time we brought some festive cheer. So here is our favourite Christmas tune of the year, no question. Any song that starts with the line “Daddy, what’s this ? It’s a Christmas song. But it sounds just like any other Christmas song. Well, that’s the magic of Christmas,” is going to be our Christmas number one. Featuring an all star line up of your favourite indie pop pin ups from James Yuill (Shouldn’t he be James Yule for this?) to an ill Rebecca from Slow Club, The Magic Of Christmas is like a twee Band Aid for the kids in the know. We’re just loving the Christmas jumpers. Fantastic. There’s even a website for you.
Watch this and then go and kiss someone under the mistletoe. Christmas starts here.
We’ll be back again in another six hours with our final blog of the day, concerning the BBC Sound of 2010 list and our involvement in it, before we gear ourselves up for our big run down of our albums of the year.
Happy (early) Christmas from Breaking More Waves.
