Highline Records is presenting its first Christmas album 'Festivus,' a newly recorded, 15-track indie pop collection featuring Glam Chops (with Eddie Argos, also of Art Brut), Piney Gir (who was recently featured on NPR's Weekend Edition), Correatown (one of SPIN's "next big things"), the "beautiful" (Time Out) Real Tuesday Weld, and others.
The compilation skips between new wave (The Birthday Kiss, Piney Gir),
Phil Spector-inspired pop (Hunks and Friends), synth-pop (Baubles), glam
rock (Glam Chops), garage (The Werewandas), and 80s-inspired pop (St.
Veit). Handclaps, harmonies, bells, and synths abound to warm up
listeners during the holiday season.
