Hold up! Is that mom putting her scratched-up copy of Mannheim Steamroller into the CD player? Stop her before she dawns another new-age Christmas by throwing on the holiday sampler from Oregon label Hometapes, The Never Ending Beginning. You can grab it for free, but any donations are good and go entirely to the Heifer Foundation and its fight to end world hunger. It features a happy medium for you and mom in the form of Collections Of Colonies Of Bees’ stunning “Jolly Olde St. Nicholas,” All Tiny Creatures’ take on the Steamroller’s version of “Deck The Halls” (ATC performs tomorrow night at the Cactus Club), Andrew Fitzpatrick covering “Toyland,” and lots more. Download away and hide dad’s Twisted Sister Christmas album while you’re at it.
