Jon Bell

You know, we like our Christmas songs on this blog a bit odd. If it's punky, foulmouthed, depressing, LOUD, strange, synthesized; we're in. But, as you've noticed if you follow this blog, we're not steering clear of gorgeous songs, the gentile kind, the pro-Christmas ones.
This is where Jon Bell comes in. Also active in The Landing (that sounds like Dutch nu-yacht rock hero Benny Sings), he made an EP with two covers, and a very sweet, self-penned track called 'Christmas on my mind'. It's wonderfully produced, I love the handclaps, the bells and what sounds like a harmonica. A track that is as satisfying as the post-Christmas dinner glow.
