If its good enough for Mariah Carey then its ok for me.

Getting in nice and early I'd like to present a Christmas album by The Found Sound Orchestra.

Sampling the likes of Demis Rousos, Jona Lewie, Burt Bacharach, Nat King Cole, Julie London, Brenda Lee, The Sunset Band and erm, Ronan Keating, let us butcher the Christmas turkey for you.

As always, The Avalanches influence hangs heavy over this one. Lots of quirky oddness topped off with a sparkling angel.

Ho friggin ho.....

It's as if you found a use for all those Christmas albums you see in thrift stores. This is awesome.

This is wonderful! Great job, and nice you got it done so early.

Can I just change the track sequence a little and call it Merry Mixmas 2010? :D

Wow I was pleasantly surprised by this album! Great work man!

Just wondering, did you make this entirely out of samples or did you add you add some of your own sounds to it?

Thanks so much for this, it's absolutely wonderful, my kind of Christmas album. I loved Memorabilica as well, thank you.
