How To Swim release an Xmas album, a free download which is guaranteed to put a smile on the face of someone this festive season.
Basically retooling the chamber-pop ensemble’s previous three Christmas EPs – Santa’s Got All The Best Tunes, A Minor Key Christmas and Sleigh Tracks – into a standalone album, the 11-track collection is available as a download via the Personal Hygiene label.

The Xmas release precedes a couple of longer-players: rarities compilation ‘Filthy Collision’ and a best-of, of sorts, HTS15, both os which are timed to coincide with the band’s 15th anniversary gig, which takes place at Glasgow’s CCA on the 19th December, and features various incarnations of the band from through the ages.
