Stream: White Poppy’s “Whiteout” Holiday Compilation

21 Dec 2012 — Trey Reis


Christmas music has always been hit or completely miss with me. I love choirs and gospel music, but I hate, say, Wham!'s "Last Christmas" or pretty much any holiday music Harry Connick Jr. has ever recorded. It makes trying to listen to Christmas music on the radio or Pandora rather unbearable. Well, Vancouver, BC’s Crystal Dorval aka White Poppy (of NNF fame) has provided a solution in the form of a 16-track compilation of holiday classics performed by some of the cassette/blog world’s favorite noise and experimental artists including Virgin Blood, Golden Donna, and others. The whole album can be streamed for free below and downloaded for free here. Check it out! I think you’ll be surprised how eerie some of the most joyful songs ever composed can sound.
