Exclaim! had the exclusive premiere today of Nat Jay & Cookie Cartel's Stoke the Fire, out December 2 on iTunes and Spotify:
"The results [of Stoke the Fire] resemble what it might sound like if the Postal Service were to make a Christmas EP: the breezy "Deck the Halls" is full of twinkling synths and jaunty drum machines, and the blippy "Jingle Bells" is updated with lyrics about cellphones. Rounding out the five-song collection, the collaborators welcome the new year with a dreamily danceable version of "Auld Lang Syne."
Nat Jay and Cookie Cartel revealed the artwork today for their upcoming Christmas release, Stoke the Fire, out December 2 on iTunes and Spotify. The artwork is an original piece by Vancouver mixed media artist, Jon Shaw, and contains both traditional and digital techniques. Jon Shaw had this to say about the creation of the work:
“The work is a combination of illustrative and drawing techniques on paper, layered together digitally. The concept of narrative within a snow globe seems both intriguing and captivating to me, transporting familiar campfire and snow circumstances into an unfamiliar/unrealistic space.”
Nat Jay announced today that her Christmas album Stoke the Fire, a collaboration with electronic production duo Cookie Cartel, will be released on December 2, 2016 on iTunes and Spotify.
