Published Dec 19, 2011Ontario indie pop darlings the Elwins have an album called And I Thank You coming out in the new year, but while we wait for that official LP to arrive on February 21, they have given us a holiday treat to help tide us over. It's a collaborative collection appropriately titled The Elwins & Friends Volume One.
The record will be released on Bandcamp as a pay-what-you-want download starting on Christmas Day (December 25). Until then, you can preview the whole thing right here on Exclaim.ca.
In a statement, the band explain that this is the "first in a series of collaborative albums," and that it features "features T H O M A S and Doctor Ew and is chock full of sweet grooves and serious sing-along moments." The result of the collaborations is an "eclectic mix of sounds that will consistently catch you off guard."
Listen to the whole thing below, and check out a festive promo video for the release below that.
