The Polyphonic Spree Holidaydream: Sounds of the Holidays Vol. One on Limited Edition 180g LP + Download 

The Polyphonic Spree began in 2000. Since then they have traversed the globe several times over (including appearances at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert, Oscar de la Renta Fashion Week Runway Show, MTV Video Music Awards, Glastonbury, Summersonic, and various late night TV shows) while receiving accolades, adoration, and even a few imitators. What many outside of Dallas are unaware of is the band's annual Holiday Extravaganza, which is celebrating its 10th year in December of 2012.

This year, to celebrate the 10th year of the Holiday Extravaganza, the band will finally release their first volume of holiday songs, titled Holidaydream. Tim DeLaughter (founder of The Polyphonic Spree) says Holidaydream can be played all year round: "We wanted to make a record that has the sentiment of the holidays without the melodic connotation telegraphing the obvious. We took many of the standards that we all knew and loved as kids and rewrote the music and melody to give them a 'new' life while leaving others somewhat true to form."

Holidaydream: Sounds of the Holidays Vol. One is not your typical, by-the‐numbers holiday collection. The music within is magical, otherworldly, and at times somber. The songs captivate as they float by. A few of the songs have alternate melodies and truncated lyrics but maintain the timelessness and sentimentality of the song.

Kirtland Records have partnered with Good Records Recordings to release the 13-song collection on limited edition LP. The album includes 10 standards, two original compositions, and a cover of the always timely "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" by John Lennon & Yoko Ono.
