Into reggae? How about a whole Christmas album of reggae tunes by Super Hi-Fi called Yule Analog, Vol 1 (A Very Dubby Christmas).
Described as a "a Christmas album for people who hate Christmas albums", Yule Analog, Vol 1 (A Very Dubby Christmas) is the sophomore album from the Brooklyn-based five piece band.
Bassist and bandleader Ezra Gale explained about the idea for a Super Hi-Fi Christmas album, "As soon as I started digging into these songs I realized that while we've all maybe heard them too much in our lives, they're all beautiful melodies. So I really got into writing arrangements that brought something new out of them while being respectful at the same time."
Jingle Bell Rocks! is a documentary from DarbyPop Productions Inc./Mabooshi Film/Eyesteelfilm, distributed by Oscilloscope Labratories. The film is described as an exclusive access to the backstage pass into alternative Christmas music by The Flaming Lips (who actually recently released a Christmas song with Yoko Ono) to the Free Design.
The documentary will open theatrically in select markets across the country this holiday season, see dates and theaters below.
The DVD is available now, while a digital release will land on December 9th.

San Francisco-based trap/hip-hop trio K Theory is releasing a free track every day starting December 1st until Christmas time, naming the event "25 Days of Kristmas".
Please note that these are not actual Christmas/Holiday songs, but just digital gifts in the form of remixes and rarities...
I'm spotlighting the first song "Way Too Young" because their second song title is not radio friendly. "Way Too Young" is about the time K Theory was in Hawaii and one of the members, Dylan, got a rare and deadly bacterial infection called leptospirosis.
Dylan recounts his ordeal of the three-week medically induced coma:
