December 3: Low

Low - Christmas

This is the only Christmas album I keep on my iPod year-round.  I usually don't listen to the entire album until December hits, but I usually find myself needing to hear "If You Were Born Today" a few times throughout the year.
This album finds them performing 3 Christmas classics and 5 originals.  Those familiar with Low will recognize their signature "slow-core" sound on a lot of these, but they also dial up the Christmas spirit a little, especially on the opener - a Spector-influenced gem of Christmas pop ("Just Like Christmas").
It may not be for everyone.  But on a snowy December day, this album is just about perfect.

"Just Like Christmas"

"If You Were Born Today"

"Blue Christmas"
