NFR Does Xmas: Golau Glau - Myrrh & Myth

Golau Glau
Myrrh & Myth


To make up for the ultra violence of the UKBMW I am counterbalancing it with a week of festive songs; just one a day, let's not go overboard. Having a child is definitely adding new meaning to Christmas and he's two now so he really gets that there's an occasion to be had and he's up for it so this is as much for him as it is for you, or rather if it wasn't for him I wouldn't be doing this!

I'm starting off with a full free album download from the wonderful Golau Glau, released on Pin Factory records. If this doesn't bring to mind the most romantic, wintery and twinkly festive vista for you then nothing will.  There are six songs and a remix in the album and the download also has the video for Yew in it. They have videos for all the songs from the ep on their Vimeo page HERE.

My choice for the Christmas song for you is their cover of the traditional hymn O Come O Come Emmanuel. Much more beautifully sung than the inchoate mumbling that passing for carol singing in most church services.
