Just in time for Christmas, my great friend, Double Eyelid producer and collaborator Karl Mohr has decided to give everyone a present by making his classic holiday-themed album ‘Magic Christmas’ available again as a free download.
Celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2017, this is a truly one-of-a-kind album. It’s Karl’s take on a number of Christmas classics, with a few obscurities and some French Canadian content to boot. It’s absolutely bent… yet oddly, stays respectful to the spirit of Christmas throughout.
And for the last 15 years or so, it hasn’t really been Christmas at my house until this album gets played.
Karl originally released this on CD; those are long out of print which I think is a shame – I’ve given a few of them as gifts and they were warmly appreciated. Consider this his gift to you!
The 2017 edition includes a bit of bonus content – 2 cover songs, including a version of Iggy Pop’s Nightclubbing that I (allegedly) played guitar on.
Grab the next soundtrack to your Christmas here:
NOTE: The link goes to a zip file, so if you’re on your mobile, this isn’t ‘click and play’ – download the free album to your computer and then open it in iTunes or whatever you use to listen to music.
Want a quick sample? Here’s his version of ‘Frosty the Snowman’:
