Guestpost time again. Joris Stereo on Spanish indie navidad:

'Villacincos is a series of yearly compilations of new Christmas songs on cassette put out by the Madrid label Jeanne D'Arc. The third edition has just been released and it is a considerably mixed bag, both in musical styles and quality I must admit. My personal favourites are the contributions by Martirio Martirio (even though their nervous, lo-fi electropunky (Contigo) Me Gusta Que Se Navidad doesn't sound particularly Christmassy) and Dani (whose Canción Para Volver is pretty much on exactly the other side of the musical spectrum: quiet, introverted and acoustic).'
