|The Hives are not the only Swedish artist to release a Christmas song, now electro duo TIAC (who, to be blunt, sound a bit like TTA but not as good) have released a song called "It's Christmas (but not for you)" as a free download (see below). You can also download the MP3 with the high res artwork here. Does anyone do that? I mean, why would you want the artwork for an MP3? Am I missing something here? Quite a few labels and artists seem to provide this little extra service. Is it to make it as more of an official release, and set it apart from a run-of-the-mill MP3 blog post? It's kind of cute, but I don't really see the point of it. Anyhow, I'll leave all that to the labels - I shouldn't really complain when they're giving away music for free. "It's Christmas (but not for you)" is a neat little Christmas song, that plods along just fine and I wouldn't mind having it playing in the background while sitting in my ugly black leather sofa, cracking nuts and drinking whiskey, come the Holiday.
