Seasonal Songs with Labasheeda and Yoko Ono

 Amsterdam based band Labasheeda aren't that Christmassy. But they like the holiday season. So they decided to release a sort of winter EP, called 'Old Traditions'. It's out on Bandcamp. Normally they are quite a loud guitar indie band. But now they lowered the tempo and play more introvert. So listen to their song 'Cold Days'.

A couple of years ago they did release a very limited white 7 inch, with a great version of the Yoko Ono song 'Listen, The Snow Is Falling' (in fact the B-side of the single 'Merry Xmas, War Is Over).

Talking about this Yoko Ono song. The Akron, Ohio based band Librarians With Hickeys have just released their more uptempo view on this number. 

And than here the original.

Princess Demeny also did a cover back in the 1980s; it appears as a bonus track on a reissued single.
