Past song of the week / December 2009

Oldfolks Home
"We Won't Cry At Christmas Time"

From the album

Featured track, available from December 3 to December 10

It's beginning to look a lot like <insert preferred holiday here> and The Loudspeaker has lined up a month of holiday tunes by Manitoba acts for your downloading pleasure.

First up, we have the first in a unique four-song series by electro pop outfit, Oldfolks Home. The project, called Christmas at the Oldfolks Home, will feature three Christmas covers as well as the original tune, "We Won't Cry At Christmas Time." Every Tuesday in December, Oldfolks Home will be sending out an email with a link for a free download of the songs. Making the project even more fun, they've tapped the talents of four Canadian artists to create art to accompany the songs. This week's art was created by Winnipeg's own Kerri-Lynn Reeves.

You can download "We Won't Cry At Christmas Time" from The Loudspeaker, but if you want the rest of the project's songs, you'll need to get on the Oldfolks Home mailing list by emailing or sending a message through MySpace.

Stay tuned for more sonic holiday presents from The Loudspeaker every Thursday in December...
