Nightlights - Christmas Time (I Wish I Was Near You) by lojinx published on 2010-09-05T19:25:56Z It’s that time of year again where thoughts turn to mince pies, sherry and Christmas songs. Keeping with the seasonal spirit Lojinx is releasing a festive mini-album – Christmas Present. Christmas Present was dreamed up last year as a fun way to give something back to the fans. Released as a limited free download last December, available only from the Lojinx website for 2 weeks, the mini-album was literally a Christmas present. Due to its overwhelming success, Lojinx has re-released Christmas Present, this time with the mini-album available on Spotify, iTunes and all major download stores. “We had so many people during the year contact us asking where they could find the songs from "Christmas Present" that we decided to release it properly and make it available for streaming on Spotify and for sale on iTunes this year,” says Ellie Alexander, press officer for Lojinx. “We had such a brilliant response to it last year and we are so happy to be able to offer up the mini-album once again. We loved that people responded so positively to this collection of Christmas songs and we hope even more people get to enjoy them this year.” Featuring artists from the Lojinx roster, the mini-album includes tracks from international acts Nate Campany (Brooklyn, USA), The Wellingtons (Melbourne, Australia) and trans-Atlantic electro duo The Bad Machines, as well as British pop band Farrah, Danish musician Henrik, Londoner Caroline Lost and London duo Nightlights. Farrah’s “Santa Don’t Go” is a feel-good pop tune about childhood Christmas memories, while Caroline Lost’s haunting “Say You’re Mine”, co-written & produced with Ivor-Novello nominated film composer Christian Henson, is an orchestral lullaby about spending Christmas alone. The Bad Machines’ “Not This Time” is an 80s-flavoured electro-synth tune, while The Wellingtons’ indie-pop blast “I Guess It’s Christmas” is a cheery song about Christmas-for-one. Henrik’s gorgeous “It’s Christmas But Listen!”, featuring sublime vocal contribution from Nashville country/pop chanteuse Kim Richey, is a sparkling song about Christmas love; while Brooklyn-ite Nate Campany’s “Be Home For Christmas” is a deliciously soft alt-country love song. Closing the mini-album is Nightlights’ folky tale of Christmas in London. Merry Christmas from Lojinx!
