advent: day four
posted by soe 3:30 am

Today marks the first day you get content from someone besides me with the beginning of the actual tour portion of the Virtual Advent Tour. Visit Molly at Revising Life after 50 today for her family’s recipe for making gingerbread houses. (Now is where I confess that I’ve never made a gingerbread house and SO want to. Thanks, Molly!)

I don’t know about you, but I really enjoy it when artists take a song, particularly one we all know, and rework it to make it their own.

Earlier this week, No Sleep Records released their latest holiday album, No Sleep ’till Christmas 7. The final track off the EP, performed by Rocky Votolato, is “Silent Night,” and really quite a nice version. Give it a listen yourself:

You can stream all five songs here and can download the full EP for whatever price you deem it worth.

Oh, this is a nice rendition! Very calm and peaceful sounding. Thank you for sharing it with us.

@Jo: I agree. Rocky has a nice voice in general, which meant any version of the song he sang was going to be pleasant, but this arrangement is just excellent.
