David Moorhead

So David Moorhead tweeted to me about his Candied Jams album, saying that these are his 10 Christmas singles all in one place. Now, I couldn't find any record of those singles being released earlier - I guess they weren't. That leaves us with an album of bluesy rock songs with a lazy xmas vibe. And by that I mean that Dave mostly sounds like he's singing from his bed. With something nice to drink at hand, the guitar resting on his belly. Thay way, not all song turn out very good, but two really stick out. The guitar-heavy 'Christmas cooking', in which Dave guides his seducing skills through his amp. And 'Fake Santa's a Dick', a solid, horned-up southern soul about the drag of playing Santa. That one is actually really, really good.
