Black Tape for a Blue Girl presents their first new recording: a lush cover of âForbidden Coloursâ (theme from the 1985 David Bowie film,Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrencewritten by David Sylvian / Ryuichi Sakamoto). Itâs a haunting, neo-classical track with lush cello from Unwoman; a track thatâs sure to put some spice in your wassail.

And it wouldnât be Projekt, without amazing ambient / electronic music. Forrest Fang and Erik WÃ¸llo each close out a disc with an extended soundscape for your snowy fireplace relaxation.
An ethereal tinged holiday experience.
