New Orleans Times-Picayune

Keith Spera of the New Orleans Times-Picayune “Christmas in China” uses the ubiquity of overseas products as a roundabout entry to a love song. “Copper Rooster” takes a whimsical look at the post-Katrina rash of copper thefts. “Sparrows” alludes to Forsyth’s spiritual side. “Sweet and Sunny South” is recycled from the Malvinas’ 2005 CD “Love, Hope and Transportation.”
