Singles Club - Holiday Edition: Gringo Star

The (fake) tree is up in my house, so damned if it must not be just about Christmas. It still doesn't quite feel very holiday around DC to me, though, either from my general meh-ness or a general lack of holiday cheer in the greater Metro area, so I have to get my Xmas kicks from music.

Gringo Star, as you well know, is quite possibly my favorite group of good time, get down Atlantans, so it seems only natural for them to cover one of my favorite songs of the season, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus." I have a vague memory of having to sing this song as part of some elementary school something-or-other, so it's fitting that the gentlemen sound like they've either been sucking some helium or sped themselves up Chipmunks style.

Along with all that trippy vocal weirdness is some pretty nifty retro-fitted music, true to Gringo form while indulging in some holiday silliness. It's pretty much cute as can be, this here cover, and should definitely help get y'all in the mood to stuff some stockings.
