Thanatos: Christmas Moments EP Name-your-price at Bandcamp
Christmas means different things to different people. Some folks are religious, some are sort-of-religious and others are not religious at all! Still, there’s a common thread among those who celebrate the holiday — memories, moments, indelible occasions that stand out. It is a time when family and friends come together. A time when strangers are kinder to each other, if they are not wrestling on a Walmart floor over who gets to buy the last My Pal Scout Smarty Paws Customizable Puppy.
Thanatos’ Christmas Moments EP is about Christmas past and the lasting hold they have on our imaginations. On the EP’s two originals, Thanatos’ guitarist/vocalist Patrick Ogle tells heartfelt tales of past memories that are still with us, still living within us. Joined by Black Tape For A Blue Girl’s Sam Rosenthal on electronics, and Faith & the Muse’s William Faith on guitar on one track, the EP is rounded out by two Christmas chestnuts.
Christmas Moments remains true to Thanatos’ penchant for mixing acoustics and electronics while calling to mind Cat Stevens, Al Stewart, and a tiny whiff of Irish Christmas ballads. There is also a whiff of Christmas magic; and by magic we mean bourbon.
