Elizabeth Morris is one of foursome Alloâ€™, Darlin, an antipodean/anglo group who made waves earlier this year on foot of their gentle self-titled debut. We knew them (well, Liz at least) as her beautiful rendition of â€˜Baby, Itâ€™s Cold Outsideâ€™ made it onto our 2009 Christmas compilation. Seems the lass has an affiliation for this particular holiday as â€˜Will You Please Spend New Years With Me?â€™ ably proves (it was those scorching Queensland Decembers that did it). This is as sparse as Allo, Darlinâ€™ get yet for all the lack of ornamental detail it is as warm and inviting as a yuletide log. It also gives a good case for not following the herd and instead spending the change of the year with your love and a suite of Disney favourites. Fireworks will surely ensue whichever you choose. KD
