12 Days Of Tunes (12)

Eyvind Earle - Winter (1981)

Ignoring some schedule cock-ups thanks to blogger, we made it! And I thought I'd try and end it with something at least Christmas related, even tangentially so. I've used up most of my fodder for this time of year but luckily I feel like I can get away with this one. Yoko Kanno's soundtrack to Ghost In The Shell is chock full of cold electronics and strings as it is, which goes in hand with the setting nice enough, and there's a select few with vocals that really stand out from the rest. Think around Homogenic era Björk, and you're in the right kinda area. Hell, there's even a song on the first OST album which is pretty much a cover of Hyperballad.

Anyway, I'll leave you with this for now, have a nice holiday season! I may be back to do another New Year's post, but I have missed them in the past so no promises. Just in case, I'll see you all in 2016!
