Recchion, Tom – “Where Were You On Christmas? ” – [Meeuw Muzak]

A nice simple recipe for some Christmas dressing, a slow melancholy loop
twinkling like a snowglobe, and then after a little bit, in comes a
spell-binding sample of someone speaking, someone who’s voice is filled
with character like Tiny Tim’s stocking should have been filled with
toys and gadgets. On the A-side, we get a gospel-like exhortation, almost
catching fire to singing, but just resonating in that icy suspension. On
the flip side a child with a mighty fine accent gets an unhurried slurry
recollection, digitally pitchbent to squeeze a couple extra drops of
sorrow out. Pretty remarkable samples in and of themselves, but truly
improved in the mix made here. No matter how many shopping days left,
these pieces by the mighty Tom Recchion (co-founder of the Los Angeles
Free Music Society) will frock your tree and mind jest fine. Slow
motion emotions…
