Accretions, in conjunction with The Trummerflora Collective, brings you several of your seasonal favorites plus a few originals to brighten up your holidays. "...and the reindeer you rode in on" offers experimental versions of christmas music as performed and arranged by Marcos Fernandes, Hans Fjellestad, Damon Holzborn, Robert Montoya and Marcelo Radulovich. From improvisations to deconstructions and parodies to electronica, we believe this is the first of its kind - an Xperimental Xmas album!

"You guys are just whacked, we love it!!!! Just when I was thinking that the Christmas season was all dull along comes ...And the Reindeer you rode in on. Thanks for all the wild wonderful stuff!!"
- KGNU Music Director

"...this five-man ensemble fares best when it casts caution to the wind, as on a percussion-only version of "Jingle Bells" that evokes the Christmas classic in name only, and on an envelope-pushing "Frosty the Snowman" that clocks in at more than 10 minutes."
- George Varga, San Diego Union Tribune

"If you're sick of commercialism, doubt Christianity, or are desperate for a break from too many airings of "Frosty the Snowman," this CD's an effective antidote. The Accretions gang pretty dependably backs its experimental claim, with much of this music falling far enough off the beaten track, into a snowdrift, to be deeply concerned with frost bite."
- Mary Leary
