Come December it'll have been 24 months since the last "proper" Christmas, there are 24 days in advent, and London based indie record label wiaiwya is now 24 years old, so, what better time could there be for a 24 track album of amazing indie, electronic and powerpop Christmas tunes.

Dolour is the name Seattle songwriter Shane Tutmarc gives himself and the ever-changing band of collaborators he surrounds himself with.

Although they emerged during the Brit-pop explosion of the mid-'90s, Spearmint weren't made for the rock star posturing of bands like Oasis, and fit better with the cardigan-wearing bedroom bands of the C-86 mold.

Peter Astor has been recording spectacular records since 1983, under his own name as well as The Loft, The Weather Prophets, The Wisdom of Harry and Ellis Island Sound.

The Edible Eyes feature ex-members of The Blanche Hudson Weekend / The Manhattan Love Suicides, and make a glorious lo-fi Suicide sound.

The second release from Cecilia Lund is a cover of the under represented Bond theme - Do You Know How Christmas Trees Are Grown?.

It's a must for fans of glacial Swedish poptronica. Corvair is a Portland, Oregon-based "super duo" comprised of Brian Naubert (Ruston Mire, Tube Top, Pop Sickle, The Service Providers) and Heather Larimer (Eux Autres).

What can you say about PARENTHESIS DOT DOT DOT that hasn't already been said? The BV's are an indiepop / shoegaze / krautrock band from Falmouth, UK and Augsburg, Germany.

Whoa Melodic (aka Michael Wood) has an extraordinary knack of conjuring a memorable tune, his debut long player is a dazzling and unbelievably catchy indie pop delight.
