A Cup Of Kindness Yet, hey rosetta!

This year's addition to the Christmas soundtrack comes via the spirited band of Maritimers, hey rosetta! A Cup of Kindness Yet finds the group in top form, giving us the original “Carry Me Home” (for free!) alongside three traditional pieces appreciably tweaked to get at the heart of their long-standing appeal. The free track is reminiscent of Paul Simon at his most focused. Download the whole shebang, and you'll also catch hints of Neil Young in Crazy Horse mode, and a larger sensibility akin to Over The Rhine (another seasonal favourite in this house). But of course it's all 100% hey rosetta! which, if you don't know it yet, is infectious and moving and all those things you want your music to be, regardless of the season.
