Camera Obscura Release Christmas Song

Posted By on Wed, Dec 9, 2009 at 1:10 PM

At this time of year, you pretty much have to choose between best-of lists or Christmas music, and I will choose Christmas music every single time. So I bring you another new candidate for inclusion on your yearly holiday playlist: Camera Obscura's cover of "The Blizzard," a song about traveling through a snowstorm to be with a loved one, which was originally released by country musician Jim Reeves in 1964. It's warm and beautiful and terribly sad, just like the holidays. The song's available on 7" right now, b/w "Swans" from My Maudlin Career.
