No strangers to cover songs, the his/her duo of Smile Smile's released at least two this year by our count. The first? That came back in October, when the band passed along our way its version of Blink-182's "Dammit" for DC9 reader consumption.

Earlier this week, meanwhile, the band released a second such cover song. And, given the theme of the season and all, it's a fitting one: Dallas' Own Ryan Hamilton and Jencey Hirunrusme have recorded a cover of the Christmas classic, "Silent Night." It's a pretty straight-forward cover, reliant on the band's already well-known strengths -- his/her harmonies, cautiously strummed guitar and confident keyboard chord stabs.

Give the duo's take a listen and download after the jump. Then, if you're still determining your New Year's Eve plans, pencil in an appearance at Club Dada on your calendar. There, at the renowned club's planned re-opening event, the band will share an NYE bill with Telegraph Canyon and Air Review.

Oh, and keep your ears further peeled for more where this came from: If the band's Twitter feed is to be believed, the band will soon have a version of "Santa Baby" also up for grabs in the coming days.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
