Swag Tuesday

Courtesy of the Karpel Group, today’s Swag Tuesday prizes are the two holiday releases from Everything But The Girl vocalist Tracy Horn and the popular indie duo, She & Him.

A Very She & Him Christmas is a wonderful collection of holiday tunes from two of music’s most impressive artists Zooey Deschanel (She) & M. Ward (Him). Inspired by seminal holiday albums by the likes of The Carpenters, Vince Guaraldi, The Beach Boys, Elvis Presley and more, She & Him have set out to create an intimate holiday recording of Christmas classics that helps bring new emotions out of old songs. With each purchase, a portion of proceeds from this album will be donated to 826National.

Following her acclaimed 2010 album, Love and Its Opposite Tracey Thorn presents a Christmas album, Tinsel and Lights, featuring ten seasonal cover versions, two new original tracks, and “Green” from Scritti Politti.  Produced by Ewan Pearson, Tinsel and Lights features Tracey s famously rich vocals and contributions on guitar and piano. Her longtime partner, Ben Watt guests on guitar and piano on several tracks. Leo Taylor (Adele, Hot Chip) plays drums, Steve Pearce – who played on Everything But The Girl’s feted album, Idlewild – is on bass, while Pearson adds signature synths and electronics. 

We have five copies of each release to give away. Enter to win both CDs by commenting on this post.
