Last year, classic London dancehall act Saint Etienne released a special fans-only Christmas album titled A Glimpse of Stocking. Only 3,000 copies were made and it was never released in stores. A lot of artists make Christmas albums for an extra buck and put no soul into it (*cough* She & Him *cough*) but this one was truly all about the music. Or some kind of dedication to hipster principles.
Whatever it was all about, “21st Century Christmas” was an absolute gem to come out of that album. Saint Etienne goes straight out pop on a song that stands out among the best of modern Christmas classics.
