"One of the most recent recordings on our list, Gareth Broke’s December is the second installment of a seasonal series that began with the September EP and will continue to expand in the new year.  Like its predecessor, the new EP is piano-based, and conjures images of safe white fields.  But the addition of field recordings, most apparent on We walk, and orchestral elements, evident throughout The empty church, make this a much fuller recording.  The sounds of footsteps and passing traffic allow the listener to make a visceral connection to the subject matter: the approach of the coldest season.  By implying an outer cold and an inner warmth, Broke wraps the season in a tidy bow.  Winter is coming, yet we need not be afraid.  Extra points to Anna Salzmann for the lovely watercolor art."
