Attwater: Christmas

I used to be a really big fan of country music.  Looking back on it now, I think it was more of a phase than anything, although I still enjoy pulling out my old Garth Brooks, Dixie Chicks, and Shania Twain albums for a listen every now and then.  That said, I think Attwater's Christmas EP, which is decidedly very country sounding, has been one of the nicest surprises so far this Christmas season.

There's a nice mix of traditional and modern songs on this EP.  It opens with a countrified cover of Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas is You", then moves on to "O Holy Night".  I don't recognize "Christmas Song (Walk Me Home)", so I'm assuming it's an original, and a very nice one, at that (I mean really, really nice - I've listened to it a few more times while typing this post, and it sounds better with each listen.  The vocals are just gorgeous, the bridge is beautiful, and the little quote from "Winter Wonderland" near the end is icing on the cake.).  "It Won't Seem Like Christmas" seems to be a Loretta Lynn cover (I'm not familiar with it, but a quick Google of the lyrics seems indicate as such).  The EP closes all too soon with "Little Drummer Boy", but the entire thing is so well done that you'll likely be coming back to it for repeated listens.

 I just noticed on their Facebook page that the album will only be free for this week, so hurry up if this sounds like something you're interested in!  

I often find that I need several listens to an album in order to really absorb it and feel comfortable enough to post about it.  Not so with this one - I heard it for the first time this morning and immediately felt that it would be worth a post.  Hopefully you'll feel the same way about it.  Happy listening!
