Not since the Cocteau Twins’ 1993 limited edition Snow EP have holiday hymns sounded so heavenly. A dreamy cover of Phil Spector’s “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” opens with Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo’s breathy vocal harmonies falling like snowflakes from gossamer layers of blissed-out guitar fuzz, distorted synthesizer ambiance, heartbeat rhythms and of course sleigh bells. Their own “Come On Santa” is a coquettish carol that lures with music box chimes, jangly guitars and Foo’s flirty vox upfront on the harmonies. The playful “Christmas Ghosts” waltzes with a haunting and faraway feel thanks to an overdose of reverb, a childlike glockenspiel, more sleigh bells and what sounds like a vintage guitar playing tremoloed leads. “Christmas In Reading, England” could've been the title for “Christmas In Cleveland” since the spectral song swirls with the same kinds of wonderfully over-processed guitar leads, heavy-lidded harmonies and mellow drum loops that middleclass British art-school bands like Ride, Slowdive and Chapterhouse were birthing in the early ‘90s. The perfect EP for your favorite shoegazer or demure indie enthusiast.
