Multiple Album Spotlight: Electric Fantastic Christmas

[Note: As of October 7, 2009, last.fm no longer has these albums available for download.  They are all still available from the Electric Fantastic Sound site, though.]

I've got a great resource of free Christmas music for you tonight. For the past three years, the Electric Fantastic Sound label has released a Christmas sampler featuring its own artists as well as international guests. The compilations, each simply entitled Electric Fantastic Christmas (or X-Mas in the case of the first one), are a great mix of both popular and original Christmas songs, all with an electronic sound that gives them a fun, catchy, and usually danceable feel.

Some of my favourite songs on these albums include Nouvelle Culture's "Douce Nuit", which I actually had as a standalone download from last.fm and liked so much I decided to track down the rest of the album; Bloodgroup's pulsating, sensual version of "Santa Baby"; Neurobash's cover of AC/DC's "Mistress for Christmas"; covers of "Last Christmas" by both Basswood Dollies and PLAS-TICk; Libra's version of Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas is You", which sounds like it was filtered through Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams"; Electraset's "Christmas Wish", which has an awesome 80s feel to it; and Quelles Paroles' cover of Elvis Presley's "In the Ghetto".

That only really scratches the surface of this great collection of Christmas music; with nearly 2 hours of music between the 3 albums, I find new things to enjoy about them every time one of them comes up in my playlist. If you're interested in checking any of them out, there are a few different ways to download them. The Christmas samplers page on the Electric Fantastic Sound website has links to ZIP archives of each album, which is the fastest and easiest way to download the entire collection. You can also check out each album's page on last.fm (2006, 2007, and 2008), where you can pick and choose which songs you want to download.

Whatever you decide to do, I hope you enjoy what you hear. Happy listening!
