Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection For All The Family


Nick Lowe


Amoeba Review

11/25/2013

The Basher has cleaned up his act. Heck, he's even releasing a Christmas album. Lowe, who, for the better part of the nineties-and-on, has reimagined himself as a dapper and earnest songwriter with a crewcut (nearly full circle to his Brinsley Schwarz days), plays Santa in his delivery of this elegant album of Christmas standards, originals, and odd secrets unearthed by Lowe's own ever-twisted mind, buried just beneath the smell of freshly shampooed hair. Expect folk and countrified gentle swing, recalling a shimmering snowy rockabilly guest appearing on a Rat Pack special, where the Rat Pack gets tied up by aging power-pop royalty.
