The Heavy Blinkers – Silence Your Drum

There must be a thousand takes on ‘Little Drummer Boy’, the majority of which are pants but then you have exceptions like the Dandy Warhols ecstatic take. Nova Scotia band the Heavy Blinkers took a pithy view from a new perspective, that of the little boy through the eyes of Mary & Joseph. If that’s not interesting enough for you then Jenn Grant’s voice should be enough to swing it. This is the type of song I search all year for to sign off on before the Christmas break. It’s perfect. Hope the next few days go well for you, we’re heading west through the snowfields to the land of midnight mass and midday drinking. Nollaig Shona! KD
