Winnipeg soul-pop outfit Chic Gamine’s latest EP, Christmas Vol. 1, is a sugary sweet addition to this year’s bounty of holiday albums.
The five-track collection features some of the band’s own yuletide favourites, along with two original jams, including “Noël (au coin de Portage et Main),” a rockin’ homage to the group’s hometown and its most well-known intersection, and a slow and sultry take on Wham’s 1984 holiday hit “Last Christmas.”
The band is currently trekking through Canada as part of the Vinyl Café Tour with Stuart McLean. Check them out in a city near you. Tour dates below.
