Gruff Rhys

an atheist christmas



Released: 19th Dec 2011

out of stock

the ever idiosyncratic singer composes a selection of imaginative & grimly festive pieces as an alternative seasonal spinner.

motown-tinged opener ‘post apocalypse christmas’ sees gruff re-imagining the ‘winterval’ through the semi-melted eyes of a nuclear holocaust survivor. humanist hymn ‘at the end of the line’ deploys lush vocal harmonies & saxophone, while mournful piano ballad & curtain closer ‘slashed wrists this christmas’ addresses the seasonally taboo subjects of manic depression & suicide.
