Looking for a little bit of hipster cred while listening to a few of your favorite Christmas time standards? Then look no further. Released in November 2011, this all-too-short collection of classic holiday tunes quickly became the album I reached for most often when it came across my desk shortly after Halloween. GRO isn’t breaking new ground on any of the tunes covered here, but lead vocalist Josh Jenkins’ plaintive and emotive voice makes you believe every word when speaking of the birth of the Christ on the tracks “Silent Night” & “O, Holy Night,” which to me serve as the pinnacle of the entire EP. The standard winter-themed songs often present around Christmas are also represented, and are performed with joy and mirth and – unless you liken yourself to ol’ Ebenezer – will have you merrily singing along. It’s short and sweet and to the point and a high recommendation for this season’s festivities.

Quite The Undertaking

Frenzied. Chaotic. Punk. The Undertaking!, San Diego's newest wild bunch, is about to release their debut album, and, if their live show is a premonition of any kind, the world will be opening up to one heck of a party with them. Contributing writer Andrew Voigt talks to vocalist Austin Visser about the band's new album, the reality of their music, and how they've been able to embrace their creative freedom.
