Christmas Is Coming Soon

The third track on His ND Xmas is "Christmas Is Coming Soon" by these guys, who call themselves Blitzen Trapper.

I still haven't caught the buzz on experimental folk, or freak-folk, or whatever they call the Blitzen Trapper, Fleet Foxes indie subgenre, but I have a soft spot for any band that name themselves after one of Santa's reindeer, especially if they put a Christmas song on one of their regular albums.

"Christmas is Coming Soon" is from BT's self-titled debut which came out in 2003, but was reissued a couple of years later. It's a very cool song, that references both Steve McQueen and Donkey Kong, and it's available for a limited time as a free download from
