The Holiday Buzz of Straight No Chaser

Before you run away from this post about Christmas carols (you knew I'd do one, c'mon!), listen carefully. Nary a trumpet or sleigh bell in hearing range, Straight No Chaser is solidly a cappella and anything from watered down.

Straight No Chaser puts the zest into classic Christmas tunes, with a fresh, rousing take on songs such as "The Twelve Days of Christmas," "Aud Lang Syne" and "Jingle Bell Rock." And these guys aren't a bunch of barbershop bums. Backed by Atlantic Records and followers old and young, SNC brightens up retro and modern music with their angelic, manmade melodies.

SNC's Christmas Cheer is the perfect holiday album for those who still haven't replaced their Miriah Carey Christmas album and are looking for a very new, delightful spin for the season.

Still don't care for carols? Check out the group's outstanding mashup of Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours" and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." If it doesn't put a smile on your face...Grinch...all I've gotta say.
