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.”
