Who Needs Mistletoe (EP)

Who Needs Mistletoe by Julie Roberts
Released: Nov 2011
Label: Aint Skeerd Records
Julie Roberts draws on the blue side of the holidays. The seven songs she's chosen are among the saddest of the genre, and she milks them to telling effect. "Blue Christmas" gets decorated with a twinkling piano, which totally plays up the sentiment of the song. "I'll Be Home for Christmas" projects an almost ghostly vibe with its cheerless instrumentation, taking the wistful, melancholy holiday song down even deeper. The lone original, "Who Needs Mistletoe," is a different kind of blue, posing the question, "Who needs mistletoe?/ I'd rather be under you." Ooh la la!
