Hey look! It’s finally December 1st. Since Thanksgiving fell relatively early in the month this year, the Christmas emails and music started filling my inbox in mid-November. That’s too early to start being holly jolly. With a sigh of relief, December has arrived and I can start sharing the goods with you guys that I’ve been sitting on.
Here’s one from Fuel/Friends favorite out of Philly, the retro jangle and shimmer-harmonies of The Swimmers. Great minds think alike, I see that Philly pal Bruce posted this same song earlier today — and his description of it is spot-on so we’ll just be lazy and repeat it: “A little bit indierock, a little bit Motown.”From that opening thump-buh-bump beat, he’s right.
The Christmas Sound – The Swimmers
The Swimmers play a Christmas party show at World Cafe Live in Philly on Tuesday at 7pm.
