Electronic is an overlooked niche for Christmas music but it is not without its attractions given that the genre is normally best deployed in the background while getting on with other activities like decorating the tree or heating the mulled wine. So while Nathan Fake’s glitchy repost to ‘Silent Night’ might not exactly have the kids eyes all aglow it nonetheless offers a sense of cool yule. While Fake is probably going to be a Christmas one-timer Mannheim Steamroller have made a career out of turning all old chestnuts into synthy juggernauts. On this occasion it is ‘Deck The Halls’ that sounds like it has descended from the skies above, an alien invader that is intent on getting involved in all the merriment over the holidays. Perhaps wrongly classified in this space is Julian Koster (of Neutral Milk Hotel fame) who takes a common garden utensil (the saw) and makes it sing like no garden utensil has ever sung before. It has an eerie electronic quality, like a noise that had slipped out of a 1970’s computer and a programme that was amongst the first to offer the user an ability to turn out fabricated sound. A weird and wonderful collection.
