Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist seem to really like Christmas. They’ve released several Christmas albums over the years as Over the Rhine, with their latest (Blood Oranges in the Snow) hitting shelves last month. That said, it doesn’t mean the husband-and-wife duo whitewash the holiday season like many musicians. Instead, Blood Oranges is what they’ve decided to call “reality Christmas” music.
Even the Snow Turns Blue gives a nice sampling of Over the Rhine’s various Christmas offerings, from the more traditional to the incredibly personal. Consider it an early Christmas present from us to you.
