12 Songs for Xmas - Twelfth Day

Day twelve. Hope you've enjoyed the songs I've picked. They were all contenders for my top five tunes of the year but didn't quite make the cut. I also hope you've taken down your Crimbo decorations. Mrs Top Five will tell you it's unlucky to keep them up any longer.

Gotta end on an upbeat. I've been a fan of the flower punk Black Lips for some time but their previous album was a bit disappointing. Thankfully they returned this year under the production control of Mark Ronson and produced the really quite brilliant L.P. Arabia Mountain.

There are a bunch of great tunes on there but Family Tree probably takes the mark as the best tune. If you're easily offended you might want to skip the video that features blood, nudity and "inter-band bonding".
