Indie troubadour records traditional Christmas album for charity
There isn’t really much to say about this one, other than its possible the best version of traditional Christmas songs I’ve heard all year. David Thomas Broughton has again proved why he is one of the best musicians on the scene at the moment. He has taken a classic Christmas song, yet somehow made if feel contemporary, without losing any of its traditional charm.
The EP was recorded in his house and thanks to this lack of technical equipment David Thomas Broughton had to get creative with how he was going to tackle each track. His voice has been layered and the pitch has been changed, to add texture and tone.
The Holy and the Ivy is the stand out track. This might be because it’s the one I know the best, but there is something about the production and voice that makes to a compelling listen. If you only buy one Christmas album/EP this year, you could do a lot worse than getting Wintertime Songs 2014.
More Alt-12-Days-of-Christmas fun. On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me eight Owls a drunking
Seven swinging couples
Six rappers guesting
FIVE COLD BEERS!
Four Cool Birds
Three boozy Friends
Two songs by Love
And a Christmas card from the Partridge Family
