Free Canadian Christmas Comp Ropes In Basia Bulat, Great Lake Swimmers, By Divine Right
Around this time of year at Exclaim!, our minds are occupied by two things: Canadian music and Christmas. Those two things have come together in an awesome way on Oh! Canada's compilation Ho! Ho! Ho! Canada Deux, which features 30 seasonal songs from Canadian indie acts.

The double album is being given away for free over at The Line of Best Fit. Many of the songs were specially recorded for the compilation, including tracks by the Mountains and the Trees, Baby Eagle, Teen Daze and By Divine Right. There are also songs taken from other releases by the Russian Futurists, Great Lake Swimmers and Basia Bulat, among others.

A few of the songs are covers of holiday classics, but many of them are original. The 30 tracks have been divided into two parts: (Not So) Silent Night and Frozen Outside/Warm In. See the tracklist below and download the album here.
