More songs from yesteryear

A follow up to the post below, more songs we forgot about, but shouldn't:

From 2012, retro-soul outta Auckland, NZ. Only single they made, according to Bandcamp. Vocalist reminds me of Levi Stubbs.

Weird 50s style waltz, deep deep horns. Think Addams Family.

Oh, how could we forget this indiepop ballad from Boston. Love that golden horn that suddenly pops up.

When you listened to a lot of Phil Spector, and indierock, and decided to give it go. Glad they did.

Actually recorded in Ecuador, but by an indierock band from Minneapolis. A bit off, but that makes it all the more charming.

OK, I'm a sucker for vocals such as these (think She & Him), and the retrovibe.

Way before Trump, this fierce rockin' track (love that organ) makes clear what Christmas should mean to all of us.

Irish sweetness, husky vocals and a guitar. Some bells. It can be so simple.

WHY ISN'T THIS TRACK ROCKIN' ALL OVER XMAS JUKEBOXES ALL OVER THE WORLD RIGHT NOW?!

The bestest Christmas track Scott Walker never wrote, or sang. What a brilliant song. Try their other xmas hit as well.
