*December 3rd* The music of Ed Kingenberger (AKA Edmas)
Since 2007 Ed has made the tradition of recording some of my absolute Christmas punk/rock favorites! Fun music that makes you want to just jump up and dance around the house in your pjs! Most of his Christmas tunes are hilarious, with sound clip commentary thrown in between lyrics like this:
Frosty the Snowman
Was alive as he could be (ITS ALIIIIIIIIIIIIVE!!!!!!)
What isn’t sprinkled with witty humor, Ed extends his arrangements towards different styles within the rock/punk/pop/grunge/etc and with great clarity. There are even some instrumental only solos, particularly “O Come, All Ye Faithful” which is a beautiful choir of electric guitar. Oh yeah, he plays all the instruments, and sings everything, and does all his own recording magic. Some friends help him out, but most of it is all him. Take a listen to EDMAS!
Ed JUST RELEASED his 2012 recordings today! I’ve been looking forward to this all year!
seriously, click the links! He’s a fellow WordPress blogger, too!
