Holiday Cheer: Free and from here

WAYFARERXMASIn November, Wayfarer re­leased their first repurposed Christmas track, a rendition of the traditional carol “The Holly & the Ivy,” featuring, per usual, all original music. The song stays true to the band’s folk sound, but the highlight of the release is the cover of the Beach Boys song “Time To Get Alone”—it’s poppy and heartwarming and, well, Beach Boysie. Available on noisetrade.com, these tracks are accompanied by a live, acoustic version of “The Holly & the Ivy.” So if you need a few new holi­day tunes (which you do if you’re still listening to the Mariah Carey Christmas album), head to http:// www.noisetrade.com/wayfarer for your free download.
