On this collection of holiday songs, Austin chanteuse Molly Burch does Christmas with a twist. Quite an omnibus, the album features classics like "I'll Be Home for Christmas" and "Auld Lang Syne" alongside heartland hits like "Hard Candy Christmas" and "Snowqueen of Texas".
"This is the most fun I've had making a record yet," Burch says. And you can hear that joy on tracks like ABBA's "Happy New Year" as well as a playful cover of Wham's "Last Christmas" with two special guests: actor / comedians John Early (Search Party, Wet Hot American Summer) and Kate Berlant (Sorry to Bother You, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) add a blithe intro and backing vocals throughout.
Recorded by Will Patterson (Sleep Good, RF Shannon, Jesse Woods) and Jarvis Taveniere (Woods, Martin Courtney, Purple Mountains), the album also features two beautiful originals penned by Burch to add to your holiday canon. "I hope it's a Christmas album for people who love Christmas music and people who don't love Christmas music. May these songs welcome in a fresh new year and many warm, happy nights."

This album is so beautiful, it hurts, especially 'yellow is the color of her eyes'.
But I can't choose a favourite song because each one corresponds to a different mood. All the musicians are dope, and Sophie Allison is a very talented songs writer and musician/singer. Saramachine

If you already own this album, you know how good it is. If you don't, then I'm probably not the first to tell you it's amazing and you need to buy it. Personally I thought "Stranger in the Alps" was an excellent debut, but it nowhere near prepared me for this - instead of the oft-dreaded sophomore slump, Phoebe has delivered what should be remembered as a defining album of the COVID era.
