We leave you this week dear reader with the first original song Kathleen Edwards has released since 2012 which as she points out is full of meows. It’s been an emotional week, what with The Affair finishing and Jean Michel-Jarre releasing his “infinite album”, so a bit of Christmas 7 weeks early is just the ticket. As Edwards describes it, the song is “little fragments, with some fictionalized embellishments, of what Christmas is like at my house” – it’s very Dar Williams at her peak. Basically great. Have a good one.
