|Silver City by Falling Up LP|
Some of the songs that continue to cloud my mind today, as I write this review include, “Emanuel”, “Oh Holy Night Reprise”, “Sugar Plum Fairy”, “Silver City”, “Silver City Sleeps”, and “The Little Robot”. It’s a shame that more people aren’t listening to this Christmas record, as it truly captures the spirit of the season in a whole new way. Falling Up has found a way to tap into the seasonal arrangements and make them all their own, without destroying the value of the notes. Sometimes with these alternative records, the songs get thrown into a trash compactor for the sake of having a Christmas record. That’s not what you get here, “Silver City” is a true gem of an alternative Christmas record.
