The discussion of starting a band that would later be called Christmas started in a Polish dive bar. The playful vocals ("hey!", "oh no!"), Morse code bass, tight drum-skins and jangly, lost guitar were recorded in Dub Narcotic Studio of Olympia, Washington in the Christmas-time of the Pacific Northwest: the summer.
“Christmas is all flailing limbs, rubbery bass and sonic slap... The band's Emily Beanblossom (Ruby Fray) loses cool with the best of them, leaving only the shattered remains of composure for the rest of the band to mop up in her wake.” – Altered Zones
