Richard Souther's latest holiday album is called "Tesla's Christmas." It is, quite simply, an album which fuses modern electronic sounds with those of antiquated instruments to recreate Christmas carols. For "Go Tell It on the Mountain" a computerized sounding drum beat is combined with synthesizer and hand bells to create a beautiful yet different rendition of this well known holiday number. "Coventry Carol" is a carol that sounds like it was created by Radiohead, as it is a synthesized and somewhat trippy track, yet still retains the true feel of a holiday song. "O Tannenbaum" is beautifully replicated using ethereal background sounds with what sounds like pleasant wooden-xylophone playing. This album is perfect for those who appreciate both Christmas carols as well as when people combine and use new musical methods within well known songs. If you are already a fan of music such as that by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra then Richard Souther's "Tesla's Christmas" is undoubtedly an album for you.
