This week, we are featuring Christmas-themed songs selected by Sonic Reducer host Brian Foss.

Brian's pick for today is "I'm Givin' You the Blues (For Christmas)" by Thee Fine Lines from the 2013 album Seasonal Songs on Wee Rock Records.

Thee Fine Lines - I'm Givin' You the Blues (For Christmas) (MP3)

Says Brian...

Formed in Springfield, Missouri in 2001, garage punks Thee Fine Lines at their heart is a family operation, driven by the brothers Justin & Jason Kearbey. They have a number of solid records out including 2015s excellent "Splittin' Time" on Wee Rock records.

Check out more music from Thee Fine Lines on Facebook, and look for more Christmas music this week on the KEXP Blog. For now, here's another holiday tearjerker from Seasonal Songs, which is available for free in its entirety on Bandcamp:

Brian Foss started hosting KEXP’s Sonic Reducer on Saturday nights in 2004. That first year, Christmas fell on a Saturday and he started a tradition of doing a yearly punk rock Christmas show with his own dumb collection of holiday hardcore tunes.All non-traditional songs – no White Christmas’s, no Jingle Bells. Only originals. Now it’s a sickness and he can’t stop. Growing his collection of yule oddities beyond punk he began DJing on air Christmas day in 2012 & hopes to continue for many years to come.
