Fromyearto year,Christmashas always beenthe mostenjoyableholiday.Aside from usuallycombinedwiththe new yearholiday, the atmosphere that it brought alwayscreatea nice warmfeeling. I love Christmasnot forcertainreligiousreasons,becauseIalways thoughtthe spirit of it isuniversal,not merelyto celebratethe birth ofJesusChrist,which isironic,because theBibleitself doesn't mentionthe exact datewhenhewas born actually.Well, speaking ofall Christmas cakes and ale, Iam very fond ofChristmassongs. Even if they onlyjustre-arrangedor sungby particularsingers or bands,I have nevergetboredwith them, and I'mso glad to knowa lot ofnewChristmassongssprungfrom yearto year.

This new promising duo from Yogyakarta is my new crush. When I heard them on soundcloud, the Lykke Li-esque voice of Elda immediately grabbed my ears. It turns out that she also presents on stage performances that spoil the eyes, kinda reminds me of Florence Welsch. Me gusta!
