Published Nov 02, 2011While the last year saw West Coast imprint Light Organ Records release records from Sun Wizard, Louise Burns and more, the label kicked things off with a Christmas compilation called Our First Christmas. Returning to its roots, the company will deliver another locally minded holiday collection this year called Light Organ Record... With Bells On.
The follow-up, which comes out November 15, features a handful of mostly Vancouver acts getting into the Christmas spirit. Mint Records alumni Vancougar contribute the sardonic "Dysfunctional Family Christmas," while a press release praises Dead Ghosts' Black Lips-inspired "Christmas Time."
Other acts include Fake Shark Real Zombie, Portage & Main and Adaline, whose Light Organ debut, Modern Romantics, was released this week.
Down below you can check out Adaline and Frederick's contribution to last year's collection, the peppy, sleigh-bell-driven "Let's Stay Inside."
Light Organ has also announced that it will be having a big festive bash at Vancouver's Waldorf Hotel on December 8, though the lineup for the show has yet to be unveiled.

1. Frederick "Artificial Christmas"
