If anything can make a buck or two, then you know someone will be doing it out-the-ass. So, of course there are more online “Secret Santa” generators than you can count. (Or 1,480,000 if you can count, like Google can.) Gawd knows how hard it is these days to rustle up a hat or an empty Tupperware container, some scraps of paper, and a pen in an office!

Shun the forced workplace camaraderie and reindeer games by giving yourself or someone you love the festive holiday gift of Purling Hiss! The Hiss his’self — a.k.a. Mike Polizze — has gifted an early Chrimbo prezzie EP called BREEZE, and it’s available via Drag City as a download only on Bandcamp. Compiling 8 tracks recorded mostly over the past year, BREEZE will please with plenty of Polizze’s off-kilter, feel-good jams.

Unsure if it will be a perfect fit or not? Then listen to the ”My Dreams” first, then, in the true spirit of the season: buy buy buy!
