Light Years (Pure)
This Barbie loves Christmas! Kate Rusby’s Light Years is her seventh seasonally-themed album, bringing her total to 22 records in a career spanning 32 years of folk music and including a Mercury Prize nomination and loyal fanbase. This album feels like a celebration – of the holiday season, yes, but also of Rusby herself.
Her light and clear voice brings pure joy and is accompanied by the perfect amount of brass instruments and appealing guitar riffs. Light Years is a good, easy listen that offers lightness and charm to the windiest and rainiest of days: classics like It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year and a seamless whisk of Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree with Sleigh Ride are intertwined with impressive originals like Spean, which will make even the biggest grinch smile. A perfect album to escape from the modern culture references and lean into the holiday vibes with.
