Advent Calendar 2010 – Day Two – The Porch Song Anthology


For the second day of the Aye Tunes Advent Calendar we are staying a bit downbeat and moody.

Don’t worry, cheery Christmas tunes are on the way later.
The Porch Song Anthology contain former Telstar Ponies members Rachel Devine, Gavin Laird and Raymond Prior, with JC Devine completing the line-up. They released their debut album in 2006, with their second due next year. Not ones to be rushed then…

Before the album comes this though, Christmas Is Cold, their new Christmassy single.
It is a bit of a bittersweet, folk tinged Americana number, and really gorgeous. It might not be happy and sparkly, but it’s got a good heart. We at Aye Tunes are suckers for a good harmony too, and Christmas Is Cold delivers beautifully.

The single was released on Monday and can be bought from Amazon and iTunes.
The Porch Song Anthology play Brel in Glasgow tonight (Thursday 2nd) to launch the single.

Don’t have a stream of the song available, so here’s the video.
