Singles Club - Holiday Edition: The Loom

Y'all know I have a major case of the warm fuzzies for The Loom. I also happen to have a major soft spot for that old New Year's classic "Auld Lang Syne," dating back even before the magical New Year's Eve I spent down the pub in snowy, small-town Scotland many years ago. So put those two together, and you've got the absolute perfect way to say a fond farewell to 2011 and usher in the promise of another year.

The rustic folk charm of The Loom breathes new life into the old Scots traditional, with kisses of thoughtful wistfulness and remembered moments. Their rendition is as beautiful as a winter's sky just before a snowfall, when the clouds glow pink and the air is crisp and clear and expectant.

If the song wasn't enough to love, the band has compiled a list of favorite memories of 2011, which is really a sweet thing indeed to read.

Happy New Year, one and all!
