Also, Birds and Arrows are included on a new Holiday compilation  "The dB's and Friends - It's Christmas Time Again" that features musicians such as The dB's, Whiskeytown, Yo La Tengo, Jeff Tweedy and more.

"Another favorite of mine is “In The Bleak Midwinter” by Birds And Arrows. The song is based on a poem by Christina Rossetti, set to music in the early 1900s by Gustav von Holst. This version by Birds And Arrows is absolutely beautiful, and it focuses just on the first verse. I love the instrumental section. This is another of tracks new to this version of the CD, and it is wonderful."
