Free music Friday

I stopped sharing music on Fridays during my Advent project because, well, I was sharing one or more songs every single day, by way of my 2008 Advent project. True, they were songs I had shared before, but they must have been new to someone, because I know every one of them was downloaded at least once. Anyway, that's over now, and by this time next week the links to those songs from 2008 will be dead (until next Christmas, probably), so I guess it's time to start sharing new music again.

To that end, here are two Christmas songs, by which I mean they are songs I heard for the first time on Christmas. My nephew David and I were driving back to Virginia from Pennsylvania; David was flipping around the stations without stopping to actually listen to anything, as 14-year-old boys are wont to do. He paused long enough on one channel—I think it was XM 26, The Pulse—to hear enough of something to know that I wanted to hear more of it. So I demanded he go back, and thus did I hear for the first time "Girls Who Play Guitars" by the British band Maximo Park. When that song ended, the title of the next song popped up on the console: "Boys Who Rape (Should All Be Destroyed)" by the Raveonettes. Well, we couldn't not listen to a song with a title like that. I don't really have anything clever or interesting to say about either song; I just like them, and perhaps you will too.
