Avant garde experimental duo Blues Control get in the holiday spirit with this far out, not-so-merry 7-inch for Sub Pop’s Singles Club. The expansive instrumental “Snow Day” personifies the gracefulness of falling snow with wobbling piano notes and tape loops, with a slight homage to “Jingle Bells” alluded to in sections of the melody. “Paul’s Winter Solstice” also embraces the group’s ambient tendencies, utilizing sleigh bells against droning synthesizers. Throw this disc on at your next family holiday gathering and tell your grandma about your love of Boards of Canada – she’ll definitely appreciate it.
