The first track on Summer at Shatter Creek’s gorgeous, forgotten self-titled 2003 debut pours together sarcasm and melancholy like a snifter of brandy into a tall glass of eggnog. “I’m not going to my girlfriend’s for the holidays – I don’t even have one,” sings Craig Gerwich apologetically in what’s a perfect tune for those bummed out by the holiday season – or for you Grinches who outright hate it.
