The New York based singer and songwriter returns with a must listen take on the holiday season.

Christmas has passed so it might seem like an odd time to be recommending a Christmas song, but Nina Nastasia’s lament on the season is too good to put to one side. Released in December, this delicate folk song captures something of the post-Christmas lull. It doesn’t feel out of place listening in early January.

A wistful photo album of a song. Reflective without being sentimental, this is an artful and tuneful take on the holidays. Gentle to the point of almost being a lullaby, the song eases along drawing the listener into its fragile threads. Nastasia’s voice is captivating and the thrifty instrumentation leaves of space for the soothing vocal to float. A wonderfully crafted song at any time of year. Don’t treat this as a Christmas song, it calls to be listened to.
