Best Albums Of 2014 #13: “Caroline Kole”

Jail Weddings and Band Of Horses w/ Jason Lytle Share Two Christmas Songs

You must have heard, it’s Christmas,… again! And here they are again, these eternal songs that come back every year with the same boring arrangements and inanity. Is it that difficult to write new Christmas songs? I guess, because we have been playing the same old clichés for over a century.
