Planting Seeds Records is based out of Virginia, and we've mentioned them a few times here.
They're offering a free seven-track digital Christmas EP, available at plantingseedsrecords.com.
One of my favorite xmas song is "Mele Kalikimaka", the Hawaiian Christmas song (this goes without saying that the ukulele is often associated with this song - but I didn't really detect it in this version), so ... if there is one song you'd want to download, it's the cover song from The Bedroom Set.
Full track listing below:
02: Mark Crozer - "Next Christmas"
03: The Young Sinclairs - "It's Christmas Time All Over Again"
04: The Bedroom Set (with Angelique Everett) - "Mele Kalikimaka"
05: Linda Draper - "Merry Christmas"*
06: Pinkie - "Pretend Like It's Christmas Day"
07: Paula Kelley - "Christmas time Is Here"
* PS True story about Linda Draper: On a long road trip to Iowa, ex-roommate put on a compilation CD I made and Draper's song, "Time Will Tell" came on and he shouted out "Oh CRAP! Who is that? That's good!". We listened to the song five times in a row.
Indiecater is a record label based in Ireland, although they don't really consider themselves as a traditional label. They have an eleven-track Christmas compilation streaming over at indiecater.com. You can pick up the physical CD for €5.

No free Christmas music from Polyvinyl, but I like these guys and wanted to pass along that they're in the middle of their 7th Annual Holiday Sale. Save up to 70% off selected items, and believe me: loads of awesome vinyls for cheap!
To ensure that you'll get it before Christmas, place your orders by December 20th noon.
