Hectic City 3b – Sounds for the Festive Vortex

Ah, the Festive Vortex. That most fidgety period of days twixt Xmas and New Year. The lucky amongst us can easily fill this time with noble pursuits and endeavours, but spare a thought for the unlucky ones, who have no alternative than to either vegetate in front of their television munching endless rounds of turkey sandwiches, or maybe take another trudge round the already well-combed winter sales. Yes, for some the Vortex can be a tough time.

So to raise the spirit of the times, and to enable mental preparation for the coming New Year celebrations, here’s part two of our skip through the records that made our switches click in 2006. Hope you enjoy.
