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!
