When the holiday parties disperse, when your friends say their goodbyes and retreat, and all that's left is you and the cold black distances outside. When rain starts tapping on your roof, cold tears from Old Man Winter that are not yet snow, and you can hear the empty vocals of the wind blowing on your windows. When the sun seems like it might never come back up, and all you have to take comfort in is a warm blanket. Soft Shelter is holiday music for those chilly in-between moments, for the December and January nights that only serve to remind you how lucky you are to be inside.
Constructed live over two such nights in the Botany Bay studio, using only a couple drum machines and reel to reel tapes of Chrismas music sourced from Edison wax cylinders. Coppice Halifax carves through the detritus of age and erosion, and composts audio from the early 1900s into feel-good movements in a wintery holiday fashion. A free digital gift to pass around, with a super-limited 31 copy run of limited edition CD-Rs with alternate cover art. Happy holidays from Coppice Halifax - stay warm and happy.
