Christmas with Summer Fiction

Summer Fiction - Christmas Eve For TwoIs it the Christmas season already?? I know the holiday decorations now go up the day after Halloween; but, I personally refuse to acknowledge them until after the fourth Thursday of November. Well now that date has passed and Christmas actually is just a month away, so even though I’m a bit of a Grinch, let us all enjoy a bit of Christmas tunage together.

Summer Fiction delivers their gift to the season in their usual wrappings of baroque pop with “Christmas Eve For Two”. This has all the hallmarks of a classic Christmas pop song…subtle sleigh bells in the chorus, mentions of snowflakes, Santa, mistletoe and “kissin’ by the glow of Christmas lights”. What else could you want?

Throw Your Arms Around Candice

It’s not flashy…but I think that’s what I like about it.  In this video for “Throw Your Arms Around Me” Summer Fiction takes their folkish 60’s vibe and set it to an old Candice Bergen movie…what’s not to like?   Watch it here…buy it on [itunes link=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/chandeliers/id405502447?uo=4″ title=”the album”]!

Philly's Got Chandeliers…who knew?!?!

artitst: Summer Fiction | genre: indie, folk, rock | label: unsigned

[itunes link=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/chandeliers/id405502447?uo=4″ title=”Summer Fiction”]

At first listen it was almost as if these cats were channeling The Jam…but ’tis not so.  I checked…no channeling.  Good song though.  “Chandeliers” from Summer Fiction‘s self-titled, debut release is a folky/indie-pop ditty that waxes a bit retro…but in a good way for sure.  We totally dig the old school vibe laid down by the  b/w presentation as it most certainly adds to the mystique of the video.

We did take a listen to some of their other songs via their Myspace page (click here) and there definitely some other notable tracks.  Be sure to look for a full-fledged review in the not so distant future but, in the meantime, enjoy the vid and be sure check ’em out online at MySpace and iTunes.

Peace –
