Civil Wars Holiday Songs

I admit, the last few years have left my interest in holiday music at an all time low. I think this year I will listen to it on Christmas Eve and Day only and that will be it, if that perhaps. Working retail has ruined me.

But I am always excited for new songs from The Civil Wars. They are one of my favorite new bands over the last year, having offered up a stellar EP and an even more impressive live album that is a free download. Now they offer us 2 holiday tracks for signing up with their mailing list, a new track, and a version of "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel".

The Civil Wars are singer-songwriters Joy Williams and John Paul White. Together they make melancholy and beautiful acoustic folk music that makes my jaw drop at times. Gorgeous.

Get the holiday songs, as well as their free Live At Eddie's Attic album on their site, and look for their much anticipated (by me) debut LP "Barton Hollow" on February 1st.

But for now, enjoy the video for their beautiful single "Poison & Wine".
