Ah, Christmas!

Chestnuts roasting over an open fire, young children forging snowmen out of fields of white. Over at Moshi Moshi towers, the festive period can mean only one thing - another instalment of free music.

It seems that the label's roster loves nothing more than getting in the Christmas spirit, as ClashMusic teams up with Moshi Moshi for a series of special 'Track Of The Day' download treats.

One of the year's brightest newcomers, Summer Camp have a yearning nostalgia for lost youth. Musically and visually the duo seem to attest for a lingering love of the 80s and (early) 90s, throwing some oblique references into their material.

A series of singles have turned the band into names to drop in hipster conversations, attaching a pop template to the ethereal explorations of chillwave. As a special Christmas bonus, Summer Camp have recorded a new festive track.

'Christmas Wrapping' is an instantly recognisable hit. Initially released by The Waitresses, underground New York label Z Records took control of the song which added some streetwise suss to the Christmas single.

Summer Camp have recorded their own version, which glistens with a throwaway charm while yearning towards lost Christmases of decades past. Still expecting a Thunderbirds set under your tree?
