Long time staple of the indie scene JJ Heller recalls favorite childhood memories on her first ever Christmas long player, splitting the instantly nostalgic project between traditional tunes and originals. Stylistically speaking, the cozy collection takes a low-key and generally stripped down approach, accompanied by the always tasteful production of both Ben Shive and Brown Bannister. Heller’s charming vocals can’t go wrong on tried and trues such as “White Christmas,” “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” “O Little Town Of Bethlehem” and “Silent Night,” though it’s her handful of self-penned selections and their timeless tones that best reveal Heller’s personal reflections surrounding the most wonderful time of the year.
