There’s also a video. If you’re a Colorado band or musician ready to expose your fresh sounds to the readers of Reverb, email your tracks — along with any interesting facts about them, as well as a photo or album art — to Steal This Track for consideration. It’s not all depressive, however. Kissing Party does a great job of blending the joy with the sadness, presenting Christmas in all its conflicting emotions. Then, there’s those who talk vaguely about “peace and good will.”
The truth must exist in a combination of all these things. Please note that downloads offered via Steal This Track are intended to whet your appetite, and are NOT CD-quality recordings. Have a safe, happy and depressive holiday, thieves. Finally, the band feels they have enough songs to finally release them as they originally intended, an album called “Winter in the Pub.”
The theme across this album is that there are a lot of things about Christmas to bum you out: Returning to your hometown and finding the same people doing the same things. We only feature tracks not available for free elsewhere. But one thing is certain; Christmas is about traditions. Below, we have we have “Warren City Christmas” for you to steal from under our tree. Here at Steal This Track, Christmas would not be Christmas without Kissing Party. This time of year, there are a lot of people concerned with the “meaning of Christmas.”
Some insist Christmas has only to do with the birth of a child messiah. But you can also download the album from Bandcamp. There are those we all share and those unique to individuals and families. Well, super sadly, this year will be the last. Or, as the band prefers to put it, “Winter in the Pub” is “Christmas carols for the crippled inside.”
This year, the band has released a trio of songs to wrap up (pun intended) the album. For many years now we have shared with you a melancholic Christmas track from the Denver band. Sleeping in your childhood bed and realizing where you once felt most at home now feels like a surreal AirBnB. Like everyone else, we want to guilt you into supporting local retailers, this time by purchasing the album, which has a super-limited run, at Twist & Shout. If you want those, please support the artists by buying their music and/or seeing them live. But we implore you to check out the whole album if you haven’t. Others complain it’s a retail marketing scam designed to get us to spend money we don’t have on crap people don’t need.
