This little beauty popped up on the shuffle as I was heading over white frosty hills yesterday morning and it was just a bit of a moment. Isn't it great when that happens?
Did you all hear this Candidate album a couple of years ago? It's a swoony, whimsical and very English pop album that I'm surprised has kept such a low profile. It's a proper grown up album full of good tunes and clever references - a good thing and well worth a revisit.
Listen: Candidate - Swear it will Snow
Oh, and it's got a song on it called Harryhausen, which can't help but make you smile if you've been raised on frequent viewings of Jason and the Argonaut. (And Sinbad the Sailor, too - our Mum can't look at Jane Seymour without mentioning that seagull foot). Bring on the Christmas edition.
