Holiday season is upon us! We’re of course big fans of ‘Last Christmas’ by Wham! here at In Sheep’s Clothing, but surely everyone has heard that one enough times by now… For those looking for some alternate listening options this holiday season, we’ve got you covered!
All this week we’ll be featuring Christmas music in various genres and styles. First up, we present the Walearic Xmas Mixes from famed Japanese record shop Coconuts Disk. “Walearic” is a term coined by shop owner Shotaro Matsumoto, connecting “Wa” (which means “Japanese” in Japanese) and “Balearic” club music established in Ibiza, Spain by DJ’s like Jose Padilla. As such, these Xmas mixes are wonderfully transportive and will instantly send you to a snowy Japan in the 80’s. Look out for sentimental tunes by Tatsuro Yamashita, Dip in the Pool, Sandii & the Sunsetz, and more!
