A short break for the holidays

December 30, 2012

It’s between Christmas and New Year’s, and, try as I might, I just can’t get it together to post a proper blog. I’ve actually got one ready to go but don’t have access to it.

I’ve been listening to my usual holiday favourites for the last month or so: Sufjan Stevens’ first seasonal box set of EPs, Low’s holiday EP, the Roches, a great concert recording from Toronto in the 1990s with Mary Margaret O’Hara, Holly Cole, Victoria Williams, Jane Siberry and Rebecca Jenkins. There’s more and more Christmas music all the time, and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing. Low’s version of “The Little Drummer Boy” is enough to hold me. Thanks.

I did listen to the new Sufjan Stevens box set, Silver & Gold, on NPR’s First Listen. It’s been up the whole month and was still there the last I looked. I’m guessing it’ll be down come January. It’s pretty good, though it has a bit more of an electronic feel than the first set of Christmas EPs.

Anyway, here’s to the holidays and to a brighter 2013. Cheers.
