The holiday season is here, which means playlists are taking shape to reflect this most festive time of year. But we hear the same Christmas songs year after year; from Wizzard to Slade to The Pogues (as amazing as ‘Fairytale of New York’ is), and even the better ones start to grate on you a little. Are there no alternatives, you ask?

Well, yes there are. Loads, in fact. Alex Nelson runs down 50 of the best alternative Christmas songs to get your party rocking to a different beat (or bring it crashing to a miserable end if that’s more your thing)…

Stellarscope’s version of Silent Night makes is at one of the “50 Alternative Christmas Songs” in one handy playlist!!! “Last seen sountracking that opinion dividing Sainbury’s advert, ‘Silent Night’ here takes on a similarly haunting quality, this time through the use of Stellarscope’s droning guitars.”

The best Of 2014 by matt catling

After a excellent year of 2013 with the third MBV album and new bands Younghusband, Hookworms, The KVB, Joanna Gruesome, and one unique signal, we entered into 2014.
2014 was the post 2013 of the excellent music scene of shoegaze, dreampop, psychedelic, stoner rock and indie rock.
new acts spring into the shoegaze/dream pop scene such as the foreign resort, strata florida, the enters, Pusher, the virgance, dead rabbits, seasufer, teen brains, Shunkan, The Vacant Lots, Spectres, Tess parks and many more. Also early 90’s shoegaze legends Slowdive (who were on Creation records from 1990-95) made a nice comeback to the shoegaze music scene. Another 2014 highlight was seeing, Meeting and interviewing bands such as Younghusbands, 14 Iced Bears, The Wolfhounds, The Oscillation, Daniel Land, 93MilonMilesFromTheSun, Black Moth, Acid Mothers Temple, White Noise Sound, Cilnic and Many More
