‘Tis the season and all, so ’tis Christmas music time here at buhbOmp as well.

I’ve spent enough time in my neighborhood grocery store and my laundromat to be sick to death of the standard holiday fare, which has been making my ears bleed since before Thanksgiving came around.

Need a respite from that shit? I know I do. That’s where the homie MattSoReal comes in. He did an awesome “Mellow Out It’s Christmastime mix” last year that we posted about here on the blog. This year, he’s at it again, and he’s expanded the concept to a series of mixes. He’s got two of them up thus far, and they’re both great.

He set it off last week with his “Thowed Christmas 2009 mix” and these poignant words to set the mood:

Yeah man, if you follow this blog, you know I have a pretty thowed collection of Holiday jams. All genres, mostly fucked up shit. …

Pretty much. Matt‘s always been a champion of not staying in his lane, and that’s what I really love about dude.

This shit knocks. Peep:

Matt just unleashed the second installment the other day, and this one takes a darker, slower, moodier turn. If I were a drinker, I’d be nursing a few whiskeys and chilling the fuck out to this one. I’m not a drinker, tho, so I’ll have to settle for some herbal tea, ’cause that’s how I do:
