Bubblegum Lemonade - Laz Christmas

Everyone still in the Christmas spirit?  I know we are, and not the least because we have a backlog of holiday offerings we neglected while we were sliding down mountains and entertaining young ones.  Why holiday music in January (other than the obvious guilt about our own negligence)?  Well, firstly because it is good music, and secondly, despite Trump's best/worst efforts, Christmas will come again next year and you'll be ahead of the game.  You are welcome!

Laz McCluskey is a man with a love for retro guitar pop, and an undeniable knack for creating his own gems in that genre.  He has several projects, one of which is Bubblegum Lemonade, and that is his chosen vehicle for a wonderfully upbeat (except for the lovely, subdued "Sunflower In The Snow") six-song EP of holiday music.  The cheeky title is Laz Christmas, which does indeed sound like your inebriated uncle launching into a story about the most recent past Christmas, but with tunes this good we can forgive the pun for a title.  Humor, charm and jangle in abundance, and a dashing cover of "Silent Night" all for the taking.

The EP is available in all formats via Matinee Recordings.
