Bruce Carter Another great slice of power pop Christmas from Bandcamp. Ringing guitars, a nice backbeat, tight harmonies, just enough reverb... What's not to like? Favorite track: Christmas In The Sun.

Track Name: Christmas In The Sun
where I come from
we have Christmas in the sun
when December rolls around
there's no snow on the ground

but you're warm by the fire
white Christmas again
waiting for Santa's sleigh tonight

he's going to call around
to everyone in this town
if its a hundred degrees in the shade
we'll go to the beach and catch some waves

but you're warm by the fire
white Christmas again
waiting for Santa's sleigh tonight

and I'll see you in the morning
together as one
in a sea of smiling faces
our Christmas in the Sun
