Oh shit. There's mention of Christmas. We haven't decorated at all and are completely unprepared for this development. Indie folk artist Hannah Peel has a new 7" out that, as always, showcases her commanding and unwavering vocal and the intricate melodies that go with it. That there's a tune called "I Believe In Father Christmas" is totally worrying, but it'll be okay in the end.

Part two of Clints christmas corner sees a much more modern day electronic offering than Nancy Wallace’s organic effort. In my childhood we sat round Mrs Yellow’s (my teacher was called Mrs Yellow unbelievably enough) piano singing ‘Little Donkey’ for hours on end, these days they gather round the Ipod and the Xbox and this modern day approach is reflected in the first offering here where Ms Peel is joined by Benge for a stark and decidedly non christmassy offering. Its good though, especially on the outro where she repeats ‘find peace’ over some futuristic bleeps.
Overleaf she covers my favourite christmas song of all time...ok third ...Last and White Christmas are one and two. Greg Lake’s ‘I Believe in Father Christmas’. There’s no chance that she can retain its air of christmas magic but she’s used a music box type sound to recreate the famous melody and it still manages to make me blubber.
