As far as we’re concerned, blog-wise, Big Rock Candy Mountain is the place to be during the month of December. For four years now, every December, the site steadily offers up obscure quality Christmas nuggets you won’t hear at the mall or Starbucks.
What’s more impressive is the fact that none of the tunes have been repeated since they began their eclectic holiday tradition years ago. The following is a medley of tracks I gathered from the last two years of Big Rock Candy Mountain’s December Christmas series. For a current dose of Christmas Americana head on over and check out the their latest holiday finds.
