Bonus MP3: Eisley's Sherri DuPree-Bemis and Say Anything's Max Bemis Offer Up Two Takes on "White Christmas"

If this Christmas is anything like last year's holiday season, then we're in store for another white Christmas in North Texas--and Tyler-dwelling Max Bemis (of Say Anything) and his Tyler native wife, Sherri DuPree-Bemis (of Eisley) will get their wish. Yesterday, on DuPree-Bemis' Tumblr page, the emo power-couple posted their take on the Irving Berlin holiday classic, "White Christmas."

It isn't exactly Bing Crosby, but the Bemis' version stays true to the original, keeping it at a mellow meter and at a lullaby volume. The only accompaniment is a plucked acoustic guitar, which plays quietly under DuPree-Bemis soothing vocal. More interesting, though, might be the other version they also uploaded, a DuPree-Bemis penned take called "White Christmas Nightmare." Writes the Eisley guitarist:
While I was recording ["White Christmas"], I became inspired to write a spooky version that lyrically, is a nod to my love of The Brothers Grimm and Tim Burton (Nightmare Before Christmas = best freaking film ever)! So I recorded this version which is basically about the witch from Hansel and Gretel who eats children...so, er...Merry Christmas!!"
Give both songs a listen -- and download -- after the jump.
