[MIX] A Burning Ear Christmas 2010 – Three Servings of Cheer

It’s only a week until Christmas!!

This years mix almost didn’t happen because I thought I wouldn’t have time to dig up good tracks but then they just started popping up and a lot of them were very cool. I grabbed the best and threw them together here for a holiday mix in three parts. First get funky with the dance party starters then slip into some original X-mas tunes by artists old and new and close it off with some reworked classics. I hope you all enjoy these jams and have yourselves a kick ass holiday season!

JAMES YUILL wants to GIVE YOU a track now ’cause his new album is still far AWAY

won’t you open up your heart and speak, won’t you let your two tongues breed beneath

♫ James Yuill – Give You Away

Longtime readers of TBE might remember James Yuill’s great track “No Surprise” from last April. Well, the Brit is back with a taste of forthcoming LP Movement In A Storm which is out in June. “Give You Away” is quite a bit darker that James’ previous stuff with gloomy lyrics and that foreboding 80s synth-line paving the way for a pretty haunting vibe. I like the groove he’s got here but the clock is ticking on my tolerance for such moody music. After the winter we’ve had here in Poland, it’s not long until there is going to be a “sunshine songs only” policy around here. In the meantime, I’m gonna bliss out to the fantastic instrumental bit in the latter half of this jam.

Remix Roundup: 10-21-09

skull252As the Remix Roundups enter double digits I decided to drop the incremental titles and go for a more archive-friendly date format. You will thank me someday. About this collection of hot remixes? You can thank me now.

♫ The Very Best – Julia (Javelin Re-do) / This is one of the best remixes I’ve heard in a while. Javelin takes one of the weaker tracks off of TVB’s fantastic album and completly rips it up, turning “Julia” in to a full throttle fist-pumper. [more The Very Best]

♫ The Gossip – Love Long Distance (Fake Blood Remix) / I haven’t even heard the original version of this song yet but i’m worried that after this I am just going to be disappointed. So far The Gossip’s remixes have treated me better than their originals. [more Gossip/FB]

Your love for James Yuill’s tunes should come as No Surprise


and it’s no surprise that your eyes are crying my name

James Yuill – No Surprise

James Yuill may be a London bloke who looks like Britt Danielsas-your-biology-teacher, but he makes some rather beautiful mellowed-out electr0-folk. “No Surprise” is from his sophomore album, Turning Down Water For Air, which came out in 2007 but is just now getting North American support. The “No Surprise” single came out recently and has a few different versions and a couple great remixes. I am really loving this guy’s vibe and will definitely be picking up his albums from eMusic to dig deeper.
