Ette - Special Occasions

What kind of idiot would feature a special edition Christmas single the week after Christmas?  That would be me.  In the rush of getting ready to slide down snowy slopes across the border Christmas week, I failed to tell you about the double A-side Special Occasions by Ette.  The two songs are "Spending Christmas With My Boy" and "Birthday".

Ette is a solo project of Carla Easton of TeenCanteen, with the able assistance of Joe Kane (Dr Cosmos's Tapelab).  This release isn't a one-off, however, as Ette's debut album Homemade Lemonade will be released in 2016 by Olive Grove Records.  On the lead track Carla's vocals recall your favorite '60s girl-group while the lyrics and chiming effects infuse holiday spirit.  "Birthday" is a sweet little tune bound to provoke a smile.

Special Occasions is available as a digital download or a limited edition Christmas bauble with a download code.
