Another day, another Christmas post... but we're not complaining one bit. These two carols are couresty of a pair of European acts on Despotz Records. Europeans celebrate Christmas, right? We're 99% positive they do. That's probably why these kick so much ass: The Deer Tracks, a she-him electronic duo from Sweden, are giving us the angelic, glitchy "Christmas Fire", with a haunting melody from chantreuse Elin Lindfors. (It's really, really good.) Similarly, fellow Swedes Twiggy Frostbite, whose name is all-too-appropriate for this time of year, share Lindfors and employ her talents wonderfully on "Bells And Chimes." If the holidays make you pensive and just a little bit moody, then snatch these up and sit inside pronto!
The Deer Tracks' Aurora is out 3/9 in the UK, and Twiggy's Through Fire precedes it in February in Scandinavia.
