A band from North Carolina, U.S. Christmas plays slow, loud, echoey and powerful psychedelic rock, reducing things to the essence of power chords and groove: even the guitar solos, such as they are, become sublimated within the fuzz and the unruly yelling of the singer, Nate Hall. But the music is really distinguished by the sounds of old synthesizers — bubbly, oscillating noises pushed up to the surface of the mix. These sounds worm their way through “Eat the Low Dogs” (Neurot), the band’s fourth album; it’s deeply interior music, stretched out to the length it deserves.
