Short Cuts

Italian blog Memoria Polaroid releases an Xmas compilation for many years now, the new one just dropped. Proceeds go to a good cause, The Photocopies are on the comp (yay), so is a very cool The 1975 cover and this highly charming song:

Sometimes, a title alone makes a mention here worthwile. From a homemade lo-fi album with ultrashort Xmas themed 'songs':
Seattle's Lacey Brown made an Xmas album in memory of her father, who passed away in January 2022. Mostly covers, this original is simply heartbreakingly beautiful:
In that same vein is this weeper by Emmy Law. I'm not ashamed to say that I had a little fine cry when I first heard this. Absolutely gorgeous (it's not about John Denver, well, only a little):
More on the upside is this The Zombies-cover by white soulboys Teskey Brothers. This song is becoming an Xmas staple more and more. HERE is a playlist with over 40 versions (and counting).
