A Sunny Day in Glasgow - "Shut Your Mouth, It's Christmas"

New MusictheneedledropComment Back in June, the zestful noise poppers over at A Sunny Day in Glasgow delivered perhaps 2014's greatest summer album, Sea When Absent. The Sydney six-piece's refreshing shoegaze production rendered this the perfect beach music (on an overcast day). But now, a week from Thanksgiving, the band is in a properly wintry spirit, participating in the limited edition cassette series Sketch for Winter. Theirs is the first installment this cycle, comprised of four "new Christmas classics" and, naturally, one Mariah Carey cover. Above, stream the confrontationally-titled "Shut Your Mouth, It's Christmas," which perfectly captures the holiday ethos. Happy listening!

Sketch for Winter I: New Christmas Classics is available here for pre-order via Geographic North (limited to an edition of 300). Also, A Sunny Day in Glasgow's label Lefse shared a cold new video for Sea When Absent cut "Crushin'." Watch that here:
