Tune of the Week 07/12/2012: Croupier

When I heard this, there was only going to be one choice for Tune of the week. This is a quite brilliant cover of ‘Carol of the Bells’ by Wicklow band Croupier.

This is a fantastic cover and at 2.10 it gets you into the Christmas spirit and leaves you begging for more. Inspired. You can get this as a free download from the soundcloud link below.

If you’re around Dublin tonight, the five piece play their last headliner of the year, cleverly titled ‘Christmas Crumble’, in The Workmans Club. Support comes from Benny Smiles and door tax is 8 blips.

– Something extra I thought I put in, last night I sent John Kennedy a link to this track and he played it on X-posure on XFM. Top Bloke!
