The Trees Community
1. Thanks to Hand/Eye records via GvsB, I got to wrap my ears around The Trees Community's 1975 masterpiece The Christ Tree. It's incredibly uplifting, sweeping between mountaintops of serenity on a choir-like breeze. The fantastic harp work easily reminds me of Joanna Newsom, the rest resembling a more angelic Polyphonic Spree. It's 12:26 long and filled with the welcome crackle of recorded-from-turntable goodness. Multiple movements and a really great find.

3. And if you're not doing any christmas shopping on Etsy.com, you're missing out plain and simple. Make it happen.
