Interesting collection of a-typical Christmas songs from multi-talent Morgan Fisher under his Hybrid Kids guise with Claws. Its pretty difficult to give this one a cohesive write up because its literally all over the place, traversing from raucous, thrasher interpretations of 'Deck The Halls' to the oddball cover of 'Happy Xmas (War Is Over)' with Lol Coxhill's epic soprano saxo dilly dallying. Its all very full on, like an ADHD attack on your family's go-to x-mas compilation and because I personally have not one ounce of seasonal cheer in me, the one that stands out the most is bittersweet ambient monologue 'No. St. Bernard' which seems to perfectly encapsulate that unique British sense of seasonal misery. Ho Ho Ho.
