If you like Christmas music then you’ll love the mp3hugger curated Christmas compilation ‘An Indiecater Christmas’, you can buy it here!
This is a brand new entry for Christmas 2007 from sonic entrepreneur Daniel James (Canon Blue). ‘Halcyon’ is one of 15 recordings by a collection of artists trying to rekindle the true meaning of Christmas. So you won’t be treated to the usual raft of seasonally adjusted wastrels, instead the feelings transmitted are genuine. ‘Halcyon’ is a lush affair, much as you’d expect from a man who has released an unheralded classic in ‘Colonies’ earlier this year. Signed to Danish label Rumraket James fetches cool experimentation from his soul and presents them to the world as soft aural tapestries. So ‘Halcyon’ flits from the speakers like it is in a state of reverse. Brooding and atmospheric the mood lightens considerably when the cascading vocals begin to dominate the scene and an imaginary perfect world emerges. From this day forth ‘Halcyon’ should establish itself as a true addition to the canon of Christmas songs you hold dear. KD
