And you thought that only Sufjan could reinvigorate the stale holiday music market. Well think again, because Bright Eyes has his own Christmas Album that deserves plenty of glossy eyed attention each December. Back in 2002 Conor Oberst recorded a charity record for the Nebraska Aids Project containing 11 seasonal favourites. Pity there was no originals but Oberst added enough of his own bright ideas to make the whole thing worthwhile. ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’ was one of the heroes of the hour as it was given the kick up the pants it deserved. Gone were the sluggish overtures and in its place was a nifty percussive sway. The song retains its old world atmosphere but it has enough oomph to have granny making use of the bottle of fine port she’s just quaffed. KD
