Just a quick post to mention a new EP which I had a small hand (actually voice) in creating.

Performed by Arctic Circle Ensemble with the Puffin Voices,

That Fuzzy Feeling is a gentle and knowing nod to Christmas records from the likes of Sufjan Stevens and Low, sprinkled with snow globe scenes and antlers aplenty. It’s Christmas (And I Hate You) is a Fairytale of New York for the toytronica generation; a Yuletide barney re-imagined as a brassy, offbeat carol, and one which references Greek mythology and human rights activists. Mistletoe & Wine this certainly isn’t.

The remaining four tracks range from ethereal delights to near-baroque arrangements, underpinned by gently swelling horns and slow-building harmonies, while the chiming strains of Unreasonable Dream, Christmas Night is a breezy closer, gradually escalating towards a stomping crescendo – an effect which is no doubt bolstered by performance-enhancing mulled wine and mince pies.

Have a listen on the Arctic Circle MySpace streaming page,

and there’s more information at the Static Caravan label’s page and on Facebook

Does it – or does it not – give you ‘that fuzzy feeling’?
