"This is the season's Night Music ---- Jill Tracy
's glorious realm that lurks within the shadow of Christmas, and will cast you under its spell."
Hailed by LA Weekly as "the cult darling of the Underworld," celebrate the release of chanteuse fatale Jill Tracy's exquisite, dark holiday collection, "Silver Smoke, Star of Night"
with an array of spectacular Christmas ghosts and spirits.
Bonus points for poisonous mistletoe.
From Stephen Hill, National Public Radio, Hearts of Space: "Finally! an alternative! Jill Tracy's foray into the relentlessly commercial world of Christmas recordings arrives like a cool meteorite in a field of pink cotton candy -- a sophisticated antidote to excessive sweetness and light. Elegantly restrained and seductively atmospheric, Silver Smoke, Star of Night presents these familiar melodies in a somber and sublime gothic soundscape.
"If Santa's mistress performed at your Christmas party, it might sound like Jill Tracy."
