If you want an antidote for all this seasonal joy and commercial jingoism that is currently hitting the airwaves, then boy have I got just the right thing for you.
Even if you only want to listen to an amazing album, then I have just the thing for you.
You remember Clara Engel, right?
She was featured on here earlier this year, and also back in 2011.
Well Clara is still going strong, and getting better and better. I'm not even sure I thought that was possible.
But her new album Ashes & Tangerines has just about blown me away.
Clara is the lady with the words, so she doesn't need my words to describe her wickedly seductive darkly delicious lyrics.
You just have to dive in.
So with no more ado, check out this awesome album.
If you buy the album from Bandcamp you get the full eleven tracks, and if the rest are as good as these it will be a totally awesome album. And we know they will be, and just to sweeten the pot if you enter the discount-code-word “borscht” to any purchase from Clara's Bandcamp, you get 20% off.
This offer is of course from Clara herself, I have no pull here.

You have to remember Sour Cherry from my post back in April this year.
Well they have just released this brand new song.
I was lucky enough to hear an advance copy. But now it's available for all to hear.
It's a really cute song about a young lady who has just broken up with her boyfriend and is gonna be bad, while looking good in her little black dress.
I betcha Kortni would look great in a LBD. She sure sounds great.
It has a terrific beat, and I'm sure it will be a big hit on the dance floor.
This could just be the antidote to all the seasonal music that is about to assail our senses.
I for one will certainly be listening to it a lot.
What a great month November turned out to be, moved to Florida and new music from Sour Cherry and Lily Allen.
Check it out, I believe it has earworm promise.
LBD (Little Black Dress)
Since that last post Sour Cherry has also released another official video.
This is a song where I featured the live version last time.
A really cool song about the village bike. :)
I'm thinking I may just have found my December artist of the month, check back tomorrow.

Cissie Redgwick is a young lady who is as easy on the eye as she is easy on the ear.
I'm guessing she is from the North Country.
Not too much I can find out about her, but the recently formed Cuckoo Records is based in Leeds. Which could be a clue.
What I do know is she is going to be the next electro swing sensation.
Following in the footsteps of Alice Francis, Cleo Panther and even Parov Stelar.
Some great sounds for the opening of the holiday season.
Here's a great track that is both ancient and modern.
Great 40's vibe with a 21st century twist.
Gimme Gimme that thing!!!!
Gimme That Swing
Yet another stunning track being released by Leeds indie label Cuckoo Records. Cissie Redgwick is an electro swing star in the making and fellow stablemate of Little Violet, with alternative mixes of 'Gimme That Swing' from MrEdwardz coming soon.
There'll also be an alternative club mix of flip side 'Mister Mister' provided by the ever popular Odjbox.
So we may as well check out the Odjbox mix, right? Très cool!!
Mister Mister (Odjbox Remix)
Of course while we are here we should check out the original.
Can't wait to hear her first album, hint hint Cuckoo Records.
