The Oil Slick: Garage Rock Tunes to Knock You Out of Your Christmas Carol Rut
The Parlor Mob
Stock up on the booze and Google Grandma's number -- it's holiday season again.
Nothing wrong with settling down with a rum and eggnog and seeing the family members whose calls you forgot to screen, but this celebrated season also has a dark side.
Yes, along with the snow, ice and awkward family gatherings, the holidays also blare “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” and “Baby (It's Cold Outside)” everywhere: malls, TV commercials, even your car isn't safe.
Soon enough, your life resembles one big Hallmark commercial.
With the season starting earlier and earlier, it's time to fight back. Here are a few songs to knock you out of the Christmas carol rut:
The Parlor Mob –- "The Beginning"
A song about reinvention and change, topics that go against the very idea of songs that have been sung and played for decades. “The Beginning” can bust a holiday funk and inspire change at the same time. With a call to try something new and one hell of a guitar breakdown around the 4:00 mark (plus the absence of snowflakes or deer), what's not to like?
