Musical Advent Calendar: The Long Winters, 'Christmas With You Is The Best'
One of those bands was Seattle pop heroes The Long Winters; Barsuk records labelmates with Death Cab for Cutie, who owe at least some of their current success to being namedropped on the show. On "Music From the O.C. Mix 3: Have a Very Merry Chrismukkah," the Long Winters appeared alongside Jimmy Eat World, Ben Kweller and Ron Sexsmith, contributing the original song "Christmas With You is the Best."
I'd like to embed a video, but again, I can't find one, but I did find the song available for free on this crazy Asian Web site. For all I know, there might be a way to stream it from there, but I have no clue. I'm a pretty bad Asian.
The Long Winters just released a live DVD yesterday, featuring a 2007 performance at Seattle's famed Showbox. Barsuk's site is currently hosting three free mp3s ("Scared Straight," "Clouds," "Cinnamon") from the show, here.
