Scottish Fiction Shelter Christmas 2012 EP

Cast your mind back a mere twelve months ago...  {hazy wavy passage of time}  In December 2011 we brought you the Scottish Fiction Shelter Christmas EP featuring seven tracks contributed by seven Scottish artists and together with your help raised over £100 for Shelter.

Such was the response that I'd long ago decided that come Christmas 2012, I'd do it all over again.  And we have.

I love Christmas.  It's a heady mix of nostalgia, family and fun.  Yet, without preaching, I'm sure we all know it can be a tough time of year for many, none more so that the countless people who are homeless at this time of year,  Shelter are a charity who do an incredible amount of work, helping those people, and throughout the other 364 days of the year.  And you can do your bit to help too.  Christmas music has always played a massive part during my festival celebrations, from the Bing Crosby classics, to the glam rock of Slade and Wizzard, to new and imaginative tracks by independent Scottish musicians.

And it's the latter that we have to offer up with the Scottish Fiction Shelter Christmas 2012 EP.  For a minimum of £3, all of which will be donated to Shelter, you can own eight new and exclusive Christmas songs to soundtrack December.  Enjoy new music whilst supporting a worthwhile cause.  (Please note £3 is the minimum donation.  By all means donate more should you wish to.)

You can download the full EP here.  Please also feel free to share this with as many people as possible.

The full tracklisting for the EP is:

The Orchids - Back To Your House
Behold, The Old Bear - Christmas Stalking
Flutes - Matchsticks (Geez A Kiss)
Esperi - Just Like Christmas Bounce
Kevin P. Gilday & The Middle Class Lovers - Crooked Christmas Tree
Lovers Turn To Monsters - It's A Very Roland Emmerich Christmas
Siobhan Wilson - In The Bleak Red Rose
Naming The Saints - Our Love's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Coincidently I've made the last Scottish Fiction Shelter Christmas EP available for download again for £2, if you do not already own it.  Click on the link above and any money raised through this will also go to Shelter.

Thanks for all your continued support and a merry Christmas!
