This post was supposed to be about the British pop legends Erasure, their new album 'The Violet Flame' and their December 10th gig in Aarhus, Denmark... But though the album is the best Erasure studio-album in a decade and their performance in Aarhus was totally flawless in every aspect, we are still a bit numbed in awe of another duo. The name is 'Shelter' and we think it's safe to say, they made a lasting impression in Denmark.
We are not short of album-releases containing more or less repetitive nonsense around Christmas. But there is always one, that sticks out - a diamond in the rough, a star that shines through the otherwise overclouded sky of glossy advertisement. Right? We (at Latebar) are not reluctant to declare Erasure's album 'Snow Globe' that star. This is the Christmas album of 2013.
