Get in the Festive Mood with Exports03

News|December 8, 2011 7:06 pm

Awesome Leicester label Robot Needs Home are giving us our present early this year with yet ANOTHER Exports release, to put us all in the Christmas mood. Exports03 provides all your favourite Leicester bands and artists giving us their renditions of Christmas classics.

In a statement on the RNH website, they comment “Exports03 is a little special. We’ve been involved with the organisation of Leicester’s White Noise Festival since it’s inception, and so this time the compilation is available for a nominal charge with EVERY LAST PENNY being donated to the festival’s chosen charity, the LOROS hospice.

Unlike the former releases in the Exports series, this one will cost you the (small) amount of two quid, but with all proceeds going towards White Noise Christmas festival, I think we can all agree it is worth it. In addition to helping a great local music organisation, you can hear the likes of Grace Petrie perform Fairytale of New York, Herra Hidro do Rock Around the Christmas Tree and a wealth of others. The full track list is…

  1. GRACE PETRIE & CAITLIN FIELD – Fairytale of New York
  2. THESE FURROWS – Last Christmas
  3. ELIZABETH CORNISH – Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
  4. FRANCIS WALSH & JOHN HELPS – Wonderful Christmas Time
  5. HERRA HIDRO – Rocking Around The Christmas Tree
  6. ROSIE DOYLE & BY THE RIVERS – Santa Baby
  7. BUENOS AIRES - All I Want For Christmas Is You
  8. WEIKIE – O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
  9. HER NAME IS CALLA – Mary In Doubt
  10. PETER WYETH – Silent Night

To download your copy (which I strongly recommend you do and listen to immediately whilst wearing a Santa hat as I am doing now) head over to the Robot Needs Home online store.
