HESITATION return with a heartfelt avant take on the Christmas record. A brandy soaked hearth of seven traditional pieces, festooned with wayward horns, robotically assisted singing and primitive sprigs of guitar.
The emotional hit of these versions - from the deconstructed Macca synth and plucked harmonics of 'Good King Wenceslas', to the zero gravity glacial cloud that forms 'Once in Royal David's City' - is undeniable. Think John Fahey and Captain Beefheart pulling an augmented reality wishbone, and you're halfway there.
