Quichenight to Bring Good Boys and Girls A Very Quichey Christmas [Fresh Tracks]

Posted By on Wed, Nov 16, 2011 at 12:57 PM

Christmas music. Whether you love it or hate it, ‘tis the season for it. Just ask baby-faced, now-officially-not-a-known-baby-daddy Justin Bieber, whose yuletide long player Under the Mistletoe sold a sadly unsurprising 210,000 copies last week and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 — making it the first-ever Christmas album by a male artist to accomplish such a feat.

Or ask East Nashville’s own Brett Rosenberg. The fun-lovingly sardonic singer-songwriter and lo-fi auteur has, under his current and perhaps better-known Quichenight moniker, just added his creative voice to the pantheon of album-oriented (or at least extendedly playful) holiday cheer with a four-song EP entitled A Very Quichey Christmas.

While Billboard heralds The Bieb’s Mistletoe undertaking as a “pretty great pop record in its own right. … [A] concept album, of sorts: a sticky-sweet tour of hook-laden R&B music that just happens to focus on Christmas,” I’m gonna go ahead and tout Quichey as a through-crackling-speaker, super-duper power-pop set: a slappiddy-dashiddy sleigh ride of bar-chord-laden bar rock that also just happens to focus on Christmas, but with a start-to-finish, under-10-minute run time that is, albeit barely, within the average cynic’s threshold for sonic seasonal merriment.

The band (i.e. Rosenberg) describes the effort as “a joyful pop romp celebrating the darker side of the ‘holiday season.’ ” Available for download, stream or — giving it mad stocking-stuffer potential — on cassette (limited edition, no word on gift-wrapping options), you can get Quichey on Bandcamp. It’s only three bucks, with all proceeds going to “benefit Quichenight.”

Here's a track:
