I know I have been strolling down the dark alleys of Christmas music of late, but I happened to stumble upon a brief ray of sunlight (despite the news’ best efforts). Will Ejzak released a short Christmas EP back on December 30, 2016, which through unfortunate timing, got lost in the shuffle. But then again… this release wasn’t really for us; Will wrote and recorded these songs as a Christmas gift for a very lucky Lauren. Three tracks of tender guitar, each accented sparsely with violin, provide a lovely bed for Will’s layered vocal harmonies. I can’t help to think that this is how Anohni’s Christmas demos might sound… which is high praise in my book. Bravo.
Bottom Line: These songs are simply adorned, yet perfectly dressed for the occasion.

Ha! This sounds more like Stubby’s stuff than Christmas Underground (unlike that “War On Christmas” track which is pure CU). A computer search turned up that I’d downloaded it (so I must have liked it), but never opened the zip for whatever reason. So thanks for posting it, since I’d forgotten it. Know that all of your efforts are appreciated.
Stubby! I do appreciate the pretty stuff too… don’t let my gruff exterior fool you, I cry at movies way too easily. Very lovely mini album indeed.
