Oh, the holidays. Like mugs of eggnog with a fine layer of nutmeg on top, you either love them or hate them! Me? I happen to love any time of year that involves sleigh bells, mistletoe and wearing knit sweaters with reindeer on them. Hit me with your best shot Santa, I’m ready!
This week’s new releases from the Cavendish, Poke, Primrose and Mediatracks music libraries are bound to get you in a festive mood. With snow already falling on the East Coast and parts of the South, it feels like we’re there already. And unlike Mother Nature, at least I waited until after Halloween!
CAV315 Whistle & Hum Christmas
Curl up around the fireplace to the soothing sounds of CAV315 Whistle & Hum Christmas! These warm and tender holiday tracks feature seasonal classics carried by humming, whistling and finger snaps. What language barrier?
POKE014/POKE014B/POKE014C Christmas Crackers
These larger-than-life toe tappin’ good time holiday tracks will give you the uncontrollable urge to sing along. POKE014 Christmas Crackers is a 3-CD series filled with infectious Winter cheer. It’s OK to be that person at the holiday party singing loudly and donning a Santa hat while having a few too many trips to the punch bowl, we won’t tell.
The holiday season in Southern California allows for board shorts and shades. PRCD209 Christmas captures a more vibrant and sunny mood to the season. So bring your beach towel, SPF 30 and open your presents by the Pacific!
MML151 Christmas Cuts
It’s a Winter Wonderland! MML151 Christmas Cuts captures the innocence and excitement of the first inklings of Christmas morning. Ah yes, feigning surprise of what’s under the tree is half the fun!
Rescue Records Artist Of The Week: Paula McMath
Canada has given us many great things – awesome hockey players, saying “eh” at the end of sentences and Paula McMath! Her diverse brand of songwriting started at a young age from a steady diet of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen while throwing in some Detroit Rock, Joni Mitchell and Patty Griffin for good measure. Her songs steeped in sincere honesty coupled with her ability to rock makes her a seasoned act with many different uses!
Let Me Wet You Down
Library Of The Week: Gothic Storm Trailers
I don’t know about you, but I love watching the trailers before the movie just as much as the featured presentation! Movie trailers with their seat-rumbling explosive soundtracks are enough to make you want to stay for a double feature. Gothic Storm Trailers, one of the newest additions to the 5 Alarm family, adds just the excitment and intrigue to drive any movie into your “must-see” list. With epic motifs, huge orchestras and choirs fueled by thunderous percussion and edgy guitars, this is one powerhouse music library to be reckoned with! Stay tuned for much more from this growing catalog!
