Khruangbin – Christmas Time is Here

It’s not easy hearing refreshing yet tasteful new Christmas music these days but Khruangbin brings it with this smooth but familiar take on Vince Guaraldi’s 1965 classic from A Charlie Brown Christmas (aside:  I could listen to that album on repeat for hours). Definitely less choral, a bit more haunting, and I would argue it has an even jazzier beat than the original. It would serve well in the background of your Christmas party, or when home alone making or drinking eggnog.

There’s a Version Mary version on their 7″ EP which is a bit more ghostly, if that’s a thing, but otherwise quite similar.

I love it. Give it a listen.
