Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

Kindercore is not only back in business (after a harrowing story that should be made into a Lifetime Original Movie) and to mark their first holiday back on the block, they've put together a holiday compilation benefiting Oxfam.

With a full-color accompanying comic book and tracks like "Je Suis France – Baby, Please Don’t Get Stoned (It’s Christmas)" you know it's one for lil bro's stocking. And in full-DIY style, it looks like they will be shipped fresh off the printing press, so order your from the Kindercore website now!

Here's a couple holiday-themed MP3s ripe for the downloading:

King of Prussia–"Xmas on the Other Side"

Rump Posse–"Carol of the Manbarks"

And the full press release scoopage:

Kindercore Xmas 3The newly reanimated Kindercore is proud to announce the latest installment in the Kindercore holiday compilation series: XMas 3: The War on Christmas, a 19 track compilations of bands rocking the jingle bell jams packed into a full color comic with a mix of holiday-themed mayhem and sweetness.

The comics may still be on the printing press and the CDs may still be baking in the magic CD oven thingy (how do they make CDs, anyway?), BUT you can now preorder XMas 3.

Head to now to order, and they will start shipping 'em on Monday, December 10th. But don't drag your feets because they are only making 100 copies for sale online (seriously–not joking here). The music and comics will also be available from the iTunes store in a few days, but this is only place to pick up the limited edition physical version.

PLUS – 100% percent of the profits from this release (both the physical and digital versions) will be donated to Oxfam to help out unfortunate folks around the world – geek out for charity this XMAS! Let the War begin!
