Boomkat Product Review:
Five tracks of Yuletide cheer on Static Caravan, all penned using the same warm and folksy, acoustic tools, despite being by a variety of different artists. Josh Weller gets three of the five tracks, opening the collection with some lovely brass, glockenspiel and brushed drums on 'It's Christmas And I Can't Find You A Present'. It's all very much in line with Sufjan Stevens' festive transmissions. Having a stab at the 'Fairytale Of New York' school of misanthropic Christmas song, Weller hooks up with Paloma Faith for 'It's Christmas (And I Hate You)'. Shifting towards a more downbeat, frosty feel, Dale Grundle brings some elegant strings and minor chords to 'This Ole World Grown Quiet', only for Emily Barker to transport us back into Sufjan territory on the upbeat brass-meets-banjo outing 'Unreasonable Dream: Christmas Night'.
