We Recommend - Seabird, 'Over the Hills and Everywhere'

With Christmas swiftly approaching, it's time to start dusting off the seasonal tunes and get into the spirit of the Christmas season. But with each new year comes new recordings from artists hoping to become part of your annual Christmas music rotation. Last year, Seabird released a 2-song Christmas EP that offered new takes on two holiday favorites. This year, the two tracks are joined by five new ones for a new digital release titled Over the Hills and Everywhere. The EP consists of seven traditional songs that have been given Seabird's own original re-imagining, which brings a familiarity and a freshness to the songs at the same time.

Last year, when I first heard  their re-arranged takes on "Silent Night" and "Joy To The World," I was actually rather disappointed. However, repeat listens helped me appreciate their creative updates and it also helped prepare me for welcoming this new EP with more receptive ears. Fans of Seabird's piano rock will love these tunes while those who are sick of hearing new versions of the same songs over and over might actually really appreciate what Seabird has done on Over the Hills and Everywhere. Check out the release now available on iTunes! - John DiBiase
