Bradford Benn How can you not love a Diehard Christmas Carol? Plus how often do people sing mother..... Favorite track: Christmas in L.A. (Yippee Ki Yay) (explicit lyrics).

Bonnie Morse There just aren't enough Christmas albums for the secular celebrant of the season. Thank you, Marian, for filling in the empty spaces in our lives. Favorite track: Christmas in L.A. (Yippee Ki Yay) (explicit lyrics).

Kathryn Soderholm If I face Armageddon, this is the song I will hopefully be singing. Favorite track: The Last Song in the World.

Elya Arrasmith Marian Call is so good at both gorgeous and ridiculous, and this album is my new favorite holiday playlist - every track makes me smile for different reasons. The title track, though, is catchy as hell and a great antidote to the same dozen holiday standards piped in everywhere you go this time of year - put it on repeat on your headphones for last-minute shopping! Favorite track: Christmas in L.A. (Yippee Ki Yay) (explicit lyrics).

frodonl Such a gorgeous mixture of tracks, all in some way related to the Holidays. I chose a favourite track above, but that is a point-in-time favourite, because there is no weak track here. Depending on my mood, any track could be my favourite. Favorite track: Es ist ein Ros Entsprungen.

A Live Holiday EP!

(Note: the title track has explicit lyrics.*)

Featuring just a few songs from Marian's Alaskan wintertime show, "Holiday Music for People who are Tired of Holiday Music." These tunes span the most reverent and the most irreverent notes about the Christmas season. It's either a long Live EP or a short Live LP -- either way, it helps to pass the December madness with panache.

These songs are exceptionally eclectic, and the full album download includes bonus patter for the real concert experience. Feel free to delete (or not purchase) any tracks you find too quirky for your collection.

Comes with a collection of differently colored album covers, artwork by Patrick Race, alaskarobotics.com. Choose your own!

*As you might expect.

She hails from Alaska but can often be found touring North America and Europe, and she lives on Twitter. Her songs are quirky, geeky, eclectic acoustic confections that taste like vanilla-cinnamon-chipotle something. ... more
