British post-rocker yellow6 (Jon Attwood) gets into the festive spirit with merry6mas2018. Usually with Christmas albums you get at least some nod to the holidays. Not merry6mas2018. In fact, this LP is wholly comprised of offcuts from November’s 20th anniversary mega-album REFLECT. Mind you, the Jonny Greenwood-aping guitar instrumentals here are pretty enough to bring a certain brand of Xmas cheer to the table. Who's for eggnog?
CD on Silber. Edition of 100 copies in rubber stamped card sleeve, with 8-page full-colour booklet.

There can't be much left in the bowels of the Yellow6 archives following on from their enormous Reflect box set from earlier this year but I'm sure Jon Atwood would know how devastated we'd all be if he didn't deliver his annual Christmas CD. Just imagine our sad faces around the fire if this hadn't arrived in time for the big day.
As usual it's a series of glorious mood pieces that come across like an early and instrumental Low with chilly soundscapes perfect for staring out of windows to. Yellow6 is incredibly prolific but always interesting to listen to. You may panic that quality control would suffer somewhat but opener 'We soar' and the following two note drone of 'Direct' are both superb mood pieces. Atwood has the ability to create something tangible out of so very little and it's often enough just to hear his guitar on it's own pick out sparse chords.
Atwood says he'll be back next year with another instalment. He better be as this ongoing series of recordings is one of the few things about Christmas that you can rely on.
