Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Scouring the corners of the land for eight very different artists indie label Fortuna Pop have come up trumps with A Christmas Gift From Fortuna Pop!, their very own tribute to the festive season. With distorted guitars, twinkly bells and cutesy samples from It's a Wonderful Life above a plodding bass line Glitterball create a woozy mood which dominates this surprisingly original selection. Saloon's heavenly contribution, "Snow", is a track that goes more than a little way to showing off their lead singer's gorgeously wistful voice. But it's not all gentle indie angst. Watch out for the wonderfully dark cover of Sinatra's "Let It Snow" and The Chemistry Experiment's atmospheric "twisted christmas present just for you". The real gem here, though, has to be The Aislers Set's "The Snow Doesn't Fall"--a bizarre seasonal ode to the winning of the Wild West. With more than a nod to the ultimate christmas album, Phil Spector's A Christmas Gift To You, it chugs along with an attitude which is pure 60s pop--perfect for raising your spirits as the temperature outside plunges.--Caroline Butler

4.0 out of 5 stars Christingle surprise 20 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Not the cheeriest choons to pop in your pipe and some only vaguely christmas orientated but a great little compiler of new indie bands which drift between laidback gentle strumming indie (lovely vocals - Saloon) to full on Mark E vocal chugging pop choons. The Aislers Set are particularly good - think the beach boys meet the Ronettes (aided by a percussion movement from Phil Spector himself)
Fed up with a "Cool Christmas"? stay in, look wistfully into the fire and dream of a better, tweer planet..
