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.
