"There Will Be No Christmas" was originally done by Crown The Empire and was included on the 2013 Fearless collection "Punk Goes Christmas". And, sure, Punk it ain't, but who cares? We're in the business of finding Christmas music that doesn't suck...whatever it is. And this one's a free download. More on that in a sec.
These young ladies providing the cover are Yuuwii & Weiwen, which is very musical, itself. On Facebook, they go by Barbie, Make A Scene! (which is less musical). And, for my money, the cover is better than the original. Those delicate voices just convey the heartache so much better. It feels like the first wee gust of winter would just pick these young women up and fly them away...like snowflakes. So sad. So beautiful.
Yuuwii & Weiwen, at this point, sing covers. And, on their Soundcloud feed, you'll find everything from "Bennie & The Jets" to "Royals" to Paramore to Usher. A lot of their earlier covers (including a couple of Christmas songs) are free downloads, too, but they're also Lo-Fi. Sometimes, Lo-Fi can be a cool thing, but Yuuwii & Weiwen sound incredible when properly recorded (as on "There Will Be No Christmas").
So I said this was a free download and that it is. But Soundcloud is getting increasingly weird. So, now, apparently, they would like you to "sign in please" (which isn't really onerous...just kinda weird after all this time), or sign in with Facebook (which, personally, I don't think you should ever do as Facebook will share far more of your info than anybody really has any business knowing--including Facebook) or you can get the download link mailed to you (a la Bandcamp and Noisetrade), which will cost you your email (but, hey, what doesn't these days).
With that in mind, head to Soundcloud if you'd like to get "There Will Be No Christmas" by Yuuwii & Weiwen as a free download. Or feel free to support independent music by purchasing the track from Amazon or iTunes.
