Molly Burch "Christmas Album" LP
The collection includes classics like “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and “Auld Lang Syne” alongside heartland hits like “Hard Candy Christmas” (Dolly Parton) and “Snowqueen of Texas” (The Mamas & The Papas) as well as a pair of originals penned by Burch. On the playful, joyous cover of Wham!’s “Last Christmas”, Burch is joined by two special guests: actors / comedians John Early (Search Party, Wet Hot American Summer) and Kate Berlant (Sorry to Bother You, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) who add a blithe intro and backing vocals throughout. Creating a holiday album was a foregone conclusion for the singer who would perform in college, alongside an early iteration of her band, as the Lonely Christmas Band at her legendary annual Christmas party. The album was recorded by Will Patterson (Sleep Good, RF Shannon, Jesse Woods) and Jarvis Taveniere (Woods, Martin Courtney, Purple Mountains) in Austin, TX and Los Angeles, CA.
