Like supporting local artists in Upstate NY? Dig Christmas music with a twist? Need a stocking stuffer for someone who does? Here ya go.
“A Super Gnarly Christmas: Volume Two” was slated to hit local shelves on Black Friday. Offering 22 tracks by 22 artists. Alongside 6 commercials by Arison Cain, Rob LaVine, and Adam Hunt, which make up the “DemonDS” tracks. All of which are from the Upstate area, the comp seeks to give area listeners a wide variety of holiday inspired original music, as well as a handful of cleverly re-imagined cover tunes.
Though you may want to give it a serious listen for content before playing it at grandma’s house.
As Corey Putney (the idea guy behind Super Gnarly’s resurrection) puts it “The album is dirty, fun, festive, offensive, and beautiful. It’s a blend of each and every genre in a way that just makes sense, and I hope that everyone enjoys listening to it as much as all of us had making it.”
In keeping with the holiday spirit, one can always expect a wide variety of Christmas music compilations to flood the market, agonizingly hoping to move each and every unit prior to Christmas eve so remaining copies don’t go into the local $1 bin at the gas station on the 26th.
That being said, instead of dropping cash on yet another copy of “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer” while secretly saying to yourself “Bitch shoulda ducked,” check out some local up and comers instead.
The idea of a band whose name is Bruce Campbell, covering Latin Xmas classic “Feliz Navidad,” makes this listen practically mandatory. Load up the Boomstick and grab a copy while you can.
