Review: Smalltown Poets – Christmas Time Again

That release, Smalltown Poets Christmas, led to the opportunity to tour and later, another set of new music, this time an EP of new and unreleased material. Now, the band is back once again, with the holidays again in their crosshairs on Christmas Time Again.
