Barenaked for the holidays

bhfth.jpgI am listening to SUCH a great Christmas Album at the moment. Having been a fan of The Barenaked Ladies for a few years, I’d really really wanted a copy of Barenaked for the Holidays but had not been able to find a copy in the UK. Yesterday though I downloaded it ($9.99) and am loving the live, musically brilliant party that combines the sublime and the ridiculous. VERY VERY COOL (and great fun) especially their version of “God rest ye ….” with sarah mclachlan as a guest vocalist. (You can listen to some previews on this site)
For a wonderfully eclectic art slideshow to accompany the music, check out Christianity today, a series of pieces that happily draws together artists as diverse (but equally talented) as Giotto di Bondone and Dave Walker, fab!
