Ah Jon Dots, where have you been all my life? This week’s Tune of the Week comes from the aforementioned Jon Dots, a Dublin based artist who has reignited the classic Christmas song. ‘Happy Christmas Baby from Me’ will wrap you in its arms and fill your heart with warmth, like a great mug of mulled wine. But, as with real life Christmas, the track is tinged with the sadness of a lost love.
Mr Dots has been a busy boy in 2017 (Please excuse me, I’m late to the party), releasing twelve tracks in the year. What’s even better is that the entire back catalogue is available on Bandcamp on a Name Your Price basis!
While ‘Happy Christmas Baby from Me’ echoes classic sounds from the seventies, the rest of Dotts’ catalogue shows a much more diverse and contemporary artist. If you’ve only got 20 minutes, check out the Impossibly EP from July for Dotts’ diversity.
This is such a gorgeous song, the closest I can come up with is “A Christmas ‘ I love you Honeybear”. Magic.
