​Christmas Music for Grinches | Posted December 13, 2016
Christmas music is one of the most popular genres of music out there, which means that there are those who feel oversaturated and struggle to enjoy it. But such people shouldn't be left out in the proverbial cold this time of year, should they? Vocal Few is here to help. 

The duo of The Classic Crime vocalist Matt MacDonald and his wife have a growing body of acoustic works under their belt, and this holiday EP of sorts fits well in their reflective traditions. In lieu of covers of the standards or festive party numbers, the 5 originals that comprise this EP all take a more quiet approach to the season. 

Opening track "Ice Storm 2008 (Merry Christmas)" sings of making the best of a blizzard, while "Cheers to Your Holiday" is the closest these songs get to a traditional Christmas song, offering encouraging warm wishes to the listener's holiday festivities. 

The middle tracks explore some slightly darker territory, tackling feelings of loneliness and self-worth. These are tracks with MacDonald's signature introspective lyrics, and they require a lot more musical digestion than your standard Christmas fare. Musically, the guitar and simple melodies are surprisingly catchy, and the inclusion of bells actually makes the songs feel ironically Christmassy.

The Bottom Line: Those wearied by the corporate Christmas music machine but don't mind a few sleigh bells have a new EP to latch onto through the Yuletide madness.
