Arts & Crafts

Canadian label Arts & Crafts released a damn fine Christmas compilation, with artists covering holiday classics in a highly original manner (listen to Auld Lang Syne!), and some artists penned their own songs. Sloan's Kids Come Back Again at Christmas, that one we've heard before (HERE), others sound new to me. Charles Spearin's The Christmas Box, with it's leftfield funk groove, is (so far) the best song on this comp. I was also very touched by Ellevator, and this pleadin' song by Reuben and the Dark , a folksy band from Alberta. HIGHLY recommended.
