A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Merry, merry Christmas Trouble! I'm here at the American Museum of Natural History nursing an egg nog hangover, listening to your tunes and the banging of the 400 year old radiator in my office.

Your Christmas music is the complete antithesis of all the other stuff I've been forced to listen to at gas stations, coffee shops and supermarkets.

Many thanks for that.
