Hey Rosetta! followed 2011's Seeds with an acoustic EP and then the Atlantic Canadian orchestral rock troupe capped off 2012 with another EP. This one is called A Cup of Kindness Yet, and it includes a few holiday-themed tunes.
The EP includes four songs. First is "Carry Me Home," a pop tune with deceptively glum lyrics inspired by cheap hotels, the loneliness of touring and being away from home on Christmas. Beyond that, "O Come O Come Emmanuel" is a chilly cover of a seasonal classic, "The First Snow" is a slow moving ballad with sweeping strings, and "New Year Song" builds to a sing-along interpolation of "Auld Lang Syne."
