Two Holiday MP3s

Tis the season, and Ghostly Records has the spirit. The label has posted some holiday treats in the form of freely downloadable MP3s: Cepia (aka Minneapolis-based Huntley Miller) turns Charlie Brown’s favorite holiday song into a mix of dissolving piano notes and dubby drum beats (MP3), while Outputmessage (Richmond, Virginia-based Bernard Farley) takes “Carol of the Bells” a little further afield, punctuating its melody and getting into some welcome production drift (MP3). Neither seems to appreciate how more fully these melodies can be disassembled, how far they can be stretched, given how familiar the songs are, but still, these are both cool tracks to toss into holiday rotation.
