Another year another Christmas album. This time it’s strangely Everything But The Girl front woman Tracey Thorn bringing the festive cheer with an eclectic choice of numbers. We’ve got a lovely cover of Stephin Merritt’s ‘Like A Snowman’, The White Stripes’ ‘In The Cold, Cold Night’, as well as a Joni Mitchell number and original cut to boot. There’s nothing here to write home about but it should make a nice stocking filler for Mum.
