Album Notes
Christmas is a time to get closer to the ones we love: friends, family, robots, and space sharks. For the space-faring Captain Ebel, this Christmas is like any other day- struggling to keep his stomach and spaceship full of fuel. That is, until a 200-foot-long space shark named Mr. Bruce hires his crew to ship some goods from a distant planet. Everything seems to be going well until Captain Ebel discovers what’s inside the crates.

The High Orbit Holiday Special is a full episode of Matthew’s not-quite-dead-yet podcast, High Orbit, complete with 5 new recordings of classic Christmas favorites and brand new original music. Yes, even robot first officer Prodo-1 sings! All 5 songs are included as part of the show and as uninterrupted, talk-free singles.

A Christmas Story Like NO OTHER!
This album is GREAT!

First off, this isn't your typical Christmas Holiday album. It's more of a throwback to years gone by of old time radio shows (set in something like the 25th Century!) when there were more stories told.

This album is a mix of some long time favorites that Matthew Ebel truly twists into something magical, followed by a brand new single called Merry Christmas from Cell Block 2.

But, interspersed throughout all this you the listener are taken on a hillarious journey with Capt. Ebel, Prodo 1, and Prodo 2.

This album is funny and witty, and is something that your whole family will enjoy.

Truly nothing like you've ever heard before.


Space fun!
I'm not normally a christmas fan, but I do love the conversations between Proto One, Proto Two, and Captain Ebel.


Dam Good Music
I'd say that I'm a casual fan of most musicians I listen, but I cannot say that about Matthew Ebel. He's one of the the Very few artists that I ave bought ALL of their albums. While I would not say he was the BEST, I would say he is DAM GOOD.

I like Dam Good music, and Matthew has it in spades, mp3's, and CD's!

from whimsical, to heartbreaking, to catchy bouncy coffee house folk rock.

The 12 Days of Christmas In Space is as good of a parody as any 12 days of christmas song I have ever heard. Not to mention you get to listen to Space Freighter Captain Matthew Ebel and his droids get shot down yet again...
