Happy Holidays | Whether you like it or not.

So, the holidays are upon us. It’s a polarizing time of the year. Some people love it, some of us hate it. But, we all have ways to cope with it. Some people drink heavily, some people bake cookies, some people cocoon and others┬álisten to tunes to get them in the spirit of the season. At Strawberry Tongue, we condone a little bit of it all. This playlist is a fluid piece. It’s constantly in flux, as is Strawberry Tongue. Featuring a smattering of holiday tunes recorded by post punk, new wave, rock, dance, rap, punk, novelty and country artists, it’s got enough variety to delight some, shock and disgust others. It’s what we do here at Strawberry Tongue, shock and delight. Not always in good ways.

Happy FestiChristmaHannuKwanzaRamadanivus!
