Brother Oliver - O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

Earlier this month, Brother Oliver released a holiday single, their rendition of the Christmas hymn O Come, O Come, Emmanuel. This happens to be one of my favorite seasonal hymns, so when I learned of this, I was very eager to listen.

True to form, the duo brings forth a folk-like sound, but also captures the haunting beauty of the hymn that I love it for. There's no attention-grabbing, distracting spin on it. It's the simple hymn we know, and a solid addition to their discography.
