Burger Streams Massive Holiday Mix
by Steven Spoerl
By now it should be fairly clear how this particular site feels about this particular label. In the latest installment of this string of breathless coverage, it’s time to focus on yet another holiday mix. If yesterday’s ostensibly anti-holiday Heartbreaking Bravery mix left a bad taste in anyone’s mouth (which, incidentally, starts with a song that Burger once released), this should wash it out well. Burger Records have compiled (and are streaming) an absolutely massive holiday playlist that spans their roster and expands to include Burger-affiliated bands. In total, the mix is a whopping 65 songs and runs for nearly three hours.
There are original songs, traditional carols, and even a few foreign-language selections. It’s one of the more unique mixes to be released this year and certainly one of the most sprawling. So, should anyone be looking for good spirit without sacrificing a punk-leaning edge, Burger has you covered for several holiday seasons. The mix is available for full streaming over at SPIN, on the label’s Soundcloud, and below. Happy Holidays.
