Never mind trying to post more new stuff this year, this was recorded in the last week!

A beautiful rendition of the Christmas carol, this also comes with extra information – such as the origin of the carol, what those three ships were, and how exactly sailing into Bethlehem may be a bit of poetic licence… Matt Norris play the Hogmanay celebrations on December 31, on the same stage as Primal Scream, Bombay Bicycle Club and Sons & Daughters.

Meanwhile, although this stream is credited to Riley Briggs, this comes from a gig he and the other Aberfeldy members played at the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh. This was around the time that 17 Seconds Records had issued their single ‘Claire.’ This is a cover of the Chris de Burgh Christmas perennial. It would be great to hear the version of ‘Merry Xmas Everyone’ (yes, the Shakin’ Stevens one) that they performed at the Voodoo Rooms last Christmas.
