The Dawn of Grace

Sixpence None the Richer is a one-hit wonder. That's why I am so psyched for their October 14th release, The Dawn of Grace. It is a collection of Christmas carols, and Christmas carols are put out almost exclusively by one-hit wonders. For instance, guess who set the English text of "Angels We Have Heard on High?" Why, Edward Shippen Barnes, of course! Ever heard of him? I didn't think so.

This is perfect, since Sixpence None the Richer just posted their rendition of "Angels We Have Heard on High" on their MySpace page for download. And it is pretty good.

It's never too early to get in the Christmas spirit! Ho ho ho.

Oh my God. Thank you SO MUCH for these tracks. I'm embarrassed to reveal how many hype machine searches I've conducted to find "Kiss Me"...

Ahh...such memories of 6th grade. Thank you, dear brother.

(By the way, I hope you didn't stumble across this album while googling "Grace.")

Allison, that is almost an inappropriate comment. Googling "Grace"... hah.
