Ever wondered what the Christmas feeling would be like in the sultry heat of a drama soaked desert or within the rich smoulder of a suffocating climate? Rooster Cole provides the answer with his pair of festive offerings in the provocative shapes of I Saw Mummy Kissing Santa Claus and Winter Wonderland.
Those aware of the Rooster Cole sound know the solo project of Mark S. Aaron (Black Black Hills) is a rich and evocative immersion of mariachi toned dark rock ‘n’ roll creating its own distinct place somewhere between Nick Cave, Roy Orbison, and Eighteen Nightmares at the Lux. His two festive offerings are no different, each classic song given a striking and imaginative makeover fuelled by the unique Rooster Cole sound and imagination.
I Saw Mummy Kissing Santa Claus is a romance of the senses with sultry resonance and echoes of nostalgic temptations for ears similarly caressed by the emotively expressive tones of Aaron. Equally there is a haunting and unpredictable drama to the encounter too but not enough to lose the festive warmth and glow of the song as it serenades with increasing creative theatre.
Similarly Winter Wonderland is a weave of those same heated textures yet provides its own unique mesmerism from its first breath, creating an immersive hug through its imagination intrusive sound. It carries a climatic air to its evocative body and intimate croon too, one becoming more wonderfully invasive and dramatic as the track grows and seduces the senses.
Fair to say Christmas songs traditionally leave our spirit and expectations of finding even a slither of pleasure in them dead but this year there has been a bit of a shock to the system. Already we have had stirring and irresistible offerings from both The Elfish Presleys and Venus de Vilo, and now with these two exotic treats from Rooster Cole, we may have to concede that all is not lost for festive musical temptation after all.
Both I Saw Mummy Kissing Santa Claus and Winter Wonderland are out now and ready to make your Christmas soundtrack @ http://roostercole.bandcamp.com/
