One of our favourite indie labels Little Red Rabbit Records are showing their appreciation for all the goodwill shown to the label throughout 2011. The label has put together a special Christmas compilation, ‘SEASONALIA’, available now as a free download.
Many of the artists have recorded new songs or given an insight into their next record with a demo/draft version. From a stunning chamber-folk take on ‘In The Bleak Midwinter’ from Samson & Delilah to the relaxed west coast soloing that closes Fuzzy Lights’ ‘Another Safe Place’, this compilation is the perfect winter warmer to keep you company over the snowy season.
1. FUZZY LIGHTS – Another Safe Place
A remixed version of the b-side to their ‘Slowing Time’ single (LRR026).
2. QUIET LONER – Tears Of St Brides
A brand new song written for ‘Seasonalia’, the first released since the ‘Spectrology’ album (LRR021).
3. SAMSON & DELILAH – In The Bleak Midwinter
Recorded especially for ‘Seasonalia’, this is their reading of the Christina Rossetti poem.
4. LAST HARBOUR – Alone For The Winter
A song from the ‘Lights’ mini-album (LRR027) that seemed to fit the theme.
5. KALBAKKEN – Ulversdale
A brand new song, the first the band have released since their ‘Then I Saw Summer & Sun On The Earth’ album (LRR011) from 2009.
6. LAZARUS CLAMP – 100W Bulb
A draft of a song for their next album, the follow-up to the ‘Against Entitlement’ album (LRR014).
7. ANNA KASHFI – Out Of The Water
A demo of a song for their next album, the follow-up to ‘Survival’ (LRR015).
8. CRAZY MAN MICHAEL – Merry Xmas Everybody
A perfect ending, Crazy Man Michael finds the sadness in the Slade hit.
