|The Mynabirds' Laura Burhenn|
It's Thanksgiving, which means in just a few days it will be officially Christmastime, folks. But let us walk you gently into the season of obliviously cheerful jingles with a non-oblivious one: "All I Want Is Truth For Christmas," a new Christmas song from the Mynabirds
(the solo project of one Laura Burhenn), which thankfully doesn't pretend the world is all rosy just because it's cold (well, sort of) and everyone's at the mall. Also after the jump: a faded, old-school video for "What We Gained In the Fire," the opening track from the Mynabirds' seriously excellent debut album, What We Lose In the Fire We Gain in the Flood.
