Part of the fun of holiday music is its sense of tradition, but it can be fun hearing new interpretations as well. This year, Austin indie rock quintet [mp3com-artist]Quiet Company[/mp3com-artist] serves up an excellent version of the classic "Angels We Have Heard on High."  In their hands, the carol becomes an upbeat rocker. The quick tempo makes it a perfect song for some of the more fast paced moments of the holiday season - say some last minute shopping. Traditional style carols are pretty, but sometimes you need something that moves. "Angels We Have Heard On High" is part of [mp3com-artist]Quiet Company[/mp3com-artist]'s A Merry little Christmas EP. So if you enjoyed that track be sure to head over to their Bandcamp page to hear the full thing! [mp3com-download url="http://files.radio.com/downloads/time-based/quietcompany-angels.mp3 " artist="Quiet Company" song="Angels We Have Heard on High" email="none" year="2011"/] You never know when a modern carol is going to become part of the classic canon of holiday music.
