Johan Hedberg: Some Kind of Christmas

Johan Hedberg Band

From Suburban Kids with Biblical Names member Johan Hedberg comes a fun new Christmas song “Some Kind of Christmas”. True to SKWBN heritage, the song is a bit quirky in Hedberg’s vocal display as well as thematically and lyrically. The song, per Labrador Records, is about spending the Christmas alone, chasing open bars and someone to count the snowflakes with.

Featuring a lovely string arrangement and playful beat is the perfect way to offset Hedberg’s signature unconventional songwriting and vocal style. Yet another great Christmas tune to join other 2012 newbies by Damien Jurado and Kishi Bashi! All three are poised to be future Christmas standards/classics!

Hedberg has been hard at work on his debut solo LP, due out via Labrador next year. (And, odd compared to the majority of Labrador’s library with exception to [ingenting], it’s in Swedish!)
