RIYL: Christmas music

Label: Soul Step Records

Is it just me or is Magic 95.5 starting to play Christmas music earlier and earlier every damn year?  I swear that on 12:01 AM on November 1st, they started cranking them out like their lives depended on it.  From Wham to Sinatra to Mariah to NSYNC, Christmas is now a 2 1/2 month marathon in the industry.  Whether you love that part of the holiday season or not doesn’t matter…it’s a freight train and you’d better get out of Nat King Cole’s way.

But hey, let those suckers over there play the same old tunes.  Over here at Sly, we’ve got two brand new ones comin’ atcha from Soul Step Records.  Matt Duncan and Pet Envy, two favorites on the label, have tag teamed a glorious 7″ on either red or green vinyl.  Duncan brings his best melancholy Scott Walker croon on This Time in December while Pet Envy groove on a soulful harmony-filled throwback feel.  If you dig this time of year, then you can’t lose with this one.  Listen to both cuts below and grab a 7″ after the ‘buy’ link.  Not too many are left at this point!
