It’s December 1, which means that only the Scroogiest of us is still resisting the pull towards Christmas music. Now, let’s be honest, there’s a lot of bad Christmas music out there. Sometimes, bad music can be part of the point, like how “Last Christmas” isn’t necessarily a good song but can still be part of the cheer. But a lot of times, bad Christmas music is just a bummer that happens to otherwise good Christmas playlists.
No worries about that this year, as we’ve done you the yuletide favor of putting together A Very RELEVANT Christmas mix, featuring some of our favorite acts like Johnnyswim, Derek Minor, Lauren Daigle, Maverick City Music, the Lone Bellow and, yes, Sufjan. And just think: this is just Part One. Stay tuned for weekly installments to keep the spirit bright.
