Impossible to believe, but it really is that time of the year. It's Christmas again. Every December, a strange spirit pervades across every corner of the globe – an onslaught of strange customs, a subculture of collective memory, both commercial and ancient. Christmas music is a universe all of its own. This episode features the weird and forgotten sounds traditional and not so traditional yuletide songs: UK synthpop, Asian Surf Rock, video game chiptunes, Irish folk-punk, hip hop, baroque pop, indie rock, and calypso.
