Its title may suggest otherwise, but this track from Scottish singer-songwriter James Yorkston's upcoming "The Year of the Leopard" is wonderfully apt wintertime fare. With a refined touch and some warm harmonies, the acoustic guitars, woodwinds and strings create a kind of folkish chamber music vibe, lending understated and elegant support to Yorkston's honeyed vocals. Lovely and intimate, consider the song an aural antidote to the post-holiday blues.
