Boomkat Product Review:
Well aye, it’s that time of year again and we’re all sick of hearing the same seasonal shite, but these smudged takes on the classics are offering welcome respite.
It’s very much historic classical, not modern, as Hesitation tackle the real old skool diamonds such as ye olde favourites ’Silent Night’ and ‘In The Bleak Midwinter’, or the nativity naivety of ‘Away In A Manger’ with an ambient-pop lightness of touch that doesn’t feel cloying, surely refreshing their timelessness for tired ears.
‘The Last Christmas’ makes up the duo’s 3rd LP together since 2018’s eponymous debut, and warmly speaks to their fraternal familiarity and nous, cannily mostly leaving out the more religious lyrics and themes for a lowkey secular slant that treats the melodies loosely in a way to be enjoyed by all during the season of goodwill and over-imbibing. Their reedy recorder-like instrumental rendition of ‘In The Bleak Midwinter’ is a lovely highlight, and the curdled vocal in ‘Oh Little Town of Bethlehem’ should raise a wry chuckle, while ’Silent Night’ is strung out like an particularly opiated Low, and ‘Away In a Manger’ is most beautifully smudged to an ambient bliss-out, with ‘Once in Royal David’s City’ rent as a gloriously slurred drone guitar version that seals the deal with a ribbon bow.
Nyawwww, good lads.
