Musical Advent Calendar 2013 – December 4

My favorite new release of this year’s Christmas season is Nick Lowe’s Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection For All The Family.  This is a collection of delightful folk-rock offerings from this coolest of grandfatherly musicians.  It’s tough to make a Christmas themed album that doesn’t suffer from familiarity of the material or ineffectiveness of original offerings.  But Nick Lowe has hurdled both of these traps and delivered interesting takes of some classics, while also endearing us to the new songs.

Included among this gem is the original ode to holiday travel, and today’s musical advent calendar offering, “Christmas at the Airport”.  It’s witty, charming, sweet, and slightly irreverent; a recipe as tasty as Christmas cookies.  This one also comes with a really fun video, so be sure to watch!
