Thinking it a wise investment of time, our three kings – Chris Maxwell, Holly Miranda, and Ambrosia Parsley – spent a few days one summer recording a Christmas EP. They delighted in jingle bells and BBQ, while taking shelter from the usual dark and complicated matter from which their songs usually spring, and frolicked in baubles, holiday weight gain and the loveliest lie ever told. This unsurprisingly became a summer tradition of theirs, and three years later, an album was born in a puff of smoke, under the brightest of stars.
The result is Catskill Christmas, a collection of twelve original holiday songs recorded in the woods of upstate New York.
Has-been French/Italian pop icon Ambrosia Parsley (seven weeks at #1; you can look it up…and suck it) flaunts her hardline 2nd amendment stance collecting Lego superhero weaponry for the coming apocalypse, ranks Vincent Price her favorite rapper.
Lucky charm/siren/snow blower & Motor City refugee, Holly Miranda once spent an underage Christmas Eve at the high roller’s table in Vegas with James Caan. Upon running out of Jimmy’s chips and magic dust, they jetted over to catch Styx at Circus Circus.
Micro-Lebanese/Arkansan Chris Maxwell, once and forever Ludlow St “King of Guitar”, deals his subversive song craft weekly for Bob’s Burgers, far more rarely for we live action mortals, in a Catskill Goat House haunted by Frankenstein & myrrh.
