One more ‘Track of the day’ before we shut up shop and retire to the wine cellar for Christmas, and of course, it is a festive tune.

It comes from the very wonderful Dark Horses, who are currently working on album two at the moment. It’s entitled ‘Jul Song’ and like Dark Horses front woman Lisa Elle it’s mysterious, sombre and has a beguiling icy beauty. The track was specially commissioned for the “Psych-Out Christmas” album compilation, which includes contributions from amongst others, Iggy Pop, The Cosmonauts, The Fuzztones, Sleepy Sun, Sons Of Hippies and Dead Meadow.

It also features as part of our third annual Xmas podcast which you can hear below.
