Commercial: Genevieve Conaty's 'Your Own Brand of Candy'
OK, I'm wildly biased as I've known Gen for ages now, and I know she's a genius, but if you're looking for something different to listen to this Christmas, you can't do worse than her debut album which came out a few weeks ago.
Imagine a sun-kissed Aimee Mann, singing with the lyrical wit of Neil Hannon of tales of summers, ice cream, romances between feeders, that sorta thing. (And if you recognise the artwork, that'll be because Uberpup had a hand in that.)
Seriously, it's lovely and wonderful and you should get you some candy now.
