It’s like the Super Friends of indie rock! So The National, Sufjan Stevens and Richard Parry of Arcade Fire got together and recorded two Christmas songs, Silent Night and this original, Barcarola (You Must Be a Christmas Tree). While this isn’t a catchy, uplifting yuletide ditty, it captures that sentimental aspect with a yearning tone, from a time where Christmas tree light infused excitement bordered on hysteria and the family would commence in their own ritual on the morning of. It’s folksy, poignant and just right.
