It tastes like Christmas

Recently dropped,'Ça goûte Noël' ('It tastes like Christmas') is the 2021 Christmas album by Québec's a cappella group QW4RTZ, hailing from Trois-Rivières.

This entire double album goes down like all those double drinks after a Christmas dinner party that you know you had but never counted - hell, you're not driving or cycling home anyway. Ça goûte Noël features some Québec Christmas classics [Le sentier de neige by Les Classels] and French-Canadian folklore numbers [Martin de la chasse-galerie about a flying canoe], some English covers, a German song as well as a few surprises.

Noël Blanc is a fun choice since they sing it in French and English, to show off that they swing (ha, pun) both ways.
