The Hotel Cafe Tour Presents Winter Songs… And Jumps On The Holiday Song Cash Cow Bandwagon

14 10 2008

I have a lot of respect for The Hotel Cafe. What once was a small coffee shop has now become one of the best singer/songwriter venues in the United States. Of course, being in the United States, you know that it had to sellout to the mainstream cash in on the holidays at some point. Today, The Hotel Cafe Tour Presents Winter Songs was released.  Talk about your star studded line-up.  This album boasts songs from the likes of Brandi Carlile, Sara Bareilles, KT Tunstall, Lenka, Katy Perry, Fiona Apple, Colbie Caillat, Meiko, and various others.  With so much talent, you know that the album is going to be amazing.  Sara Bareilles’ contribution, Winter Song, and Brandi Carlile’s, The Heartache Can Wait, are certain hits.  And, while I’m not wild about holiday albums in general (as I feel that they are nothing but attempts at making quick cash), I have to admit that I’m a pretty big fan of those two songs in particular.  So, check it out.  Buy new singer/songwriter renditions of the same old holiday songs.  Give Epic Records some extra cash.  At least Sara and Brandi contributed a couple of good, original songs.
