MPFree: It’s Christmastime in the OK!

Download a bunch of free music for your holiday season.

Sorry to have waited so long to provide you, noble OKSee reader, with quality tunes for your Christmahannukwanzika season, but I figured that the Blackwatch Studios and Nice People compilations would tide you over until I could find a spare couple of minutes to compile all the festive stuff that’s filled up my inbox like a stocking since about mid-November.

Highlighting this little collection is a pleasant surprise that The Nghiems’ front man, David Nghiem, just sent, called “Holiday in the OK.” He recorded it at Blackwatch with Will Hunt, James Nghiem (also from The Nghiems), Tyler Hopkins (The Nghiems, Black Canyon), Chad Copelin (Blackwatch) and Gazette contributor Becky Carman. It sounds like a lazy, perfect  holiday spent with your family. Love it.

Flow Machines — “I Was Born on Christmas Day”
For those who want to celebrate Jesus’ birth with a little tribal electro-pop.

DJ Von U-Kuf — “I Love You Mr. Grinch” (Laura Warshauer Remix)
Imagine Dr. Seuss wrote his famous book about a sultry pop singer with a crush on the angry, old Grinch. And then some dude made a drippy, electronic remix for it.

Caitlin Rose and Keegan DeWitt — “You Never Come Home for Christmas”
A sad, wistful folkie number: “They bring me no cheer, cause you’re never here / Just like the year before.”

Cristina Black — “When I Think of Christmas”

Another sad one, a throwback doo-wopper Christmas kiss-off.

Guided by Voices — “Doughnut for a Snowman”


I don’t give two snowballs about anything else in this song, it’s by Guided by Voices and opens with the lyrics “Start off the day with a Krispy Kreme doughnut / Sweet as life can get.” New favorite for the holidays.

Phil and the Osophers — “Brutus the Backup Reindeer”
Phil and the Osophers (get it?) offer a properly childish addition to Rudolph’s legend. It’s just one of several such tracks on “It’s Christmas Time with Phil and the Osophers,” which you can stream at the band’s website.  

Red Wanting Blue — “You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch”



I really, really, really want to hear Tom Waits take a stab at this one. I suppose Red Wanting Blue will have to do.

Merge Records — “Winter Sampler”
OK, none of these songs appear to have anything to do with the holidays, but they’re from Eleanor Friedberger, The Mountain Goats, Superchunk, Wild Flag, Archers of Loaf and the rest of the usual Merge suspects. And oh, lookie there — you can nab free Christmas tunes from She & Him and Julian Koster down at the bottom of the page!
