As we've never been much for silent nights, we have two playlists to keep these holiday nights good and fun. The first is an eclectic mix that we recommend cuing up between your second and third eggnog. Second, in the name of starting new traditions, we thought we would bring back last year's Christmas mix from Le Bain, more of a late night dance party on the yacht kind of thing. Enjoy and Merry Xmas.

It's a Very Standard Xmas Playlist
Annie O Presents: Forro in the Dark
NYC - ART
We dare you to listen to Brazilian band Forro in the Dark’s electrifying, rhythmic music and try not to start dancing—it’s pretty much impossible. The band, formed by the group’s leader Mauro Rofosco in 2002, seamlessly weaves farro (a percussion-heavy, ballroom dance hall style of music that’s popular in Northern Brazil) and elements from other musical genres like folk, jazz and rock. The result is a refreshing sound that instantly brings you to your feet. Annie O talks to the band before their show at The Standard, East Village...
Annie O Presents: Jack Gray
NYC - ART
<p><span>Jack Gray moved all the way across the world, from a small town in North Queensland, Australia to Los Angeles. He toured with fellow Australian artist Dean Lewis in the U.S. and Canada, decamped to Nashville to do some songwriting, debuted new tracks every few weeks and now he’s set to release his first-ever EP, <i>Nights Like This</i> on May 31st. It’s been quite the momentous year for 20-year-old, to say the least. He will be in New York performing his latest alt-pop tracks at The Standard, East Village on June 3rd. In advance of the show, Gray caught up with Annie O to talk about his artistic process and the exciting new projects he’s got in the works. </span></p>
