If you are among those who believe Christmas tunes are best expressed through folk music, you may want to check out For Folk's Sake It's Christmas 2011 compilation. 'In the bleak midwinter' (by Paper Aeroplanes) and 'Love in a cold climate' (by Fiona Bevan) definitely brought me in the right mood.
Released on November 28th, but you can already listen to all the songs on For Folk's Sake's Bandcamp page. The album is being sold to raise money for the Integrated Cancer Centre.
That's the spirit.
