Life After X-meh

Is the day after Christmas just another notch on the calendar?

Joanne Mackell is just watching traffic “The Day After. Christmas.” Jugband style honky tonk pop peps up the ennui.

Slower, but still bangin’ the folk-blues, James Hersch samples the neighborhood on that “Day After Christmas Day.” He concludes: it’s all right. Okay then. Next.

The Sixth Great Lake puts a fine point to it with hand-clapping ’70s pop. “Always After Christmas, Boring.” You heard it here.
