lowercase t: A Very 8-Bit Christmas

I just released a mini album just in time for Christmas. I take some traditional Christmas carols, then arrange and filter them through 8-bit chipsets, and then sprinkle in some of usual gitchcore sounds. It's free to listen as much as you want, and PWYW starting at 5.
