Superions - Destination Christmas
Even if you didn't know that Superions is the latest project by former B52s singer Fred Schneider, you'll love this fun, lo-fi funky ode to the season to be jolly. Of course, what Fred and company find jolly about the season on "Destination Christmas" may rub you the wrong way. But if you don't have stars in your eyes and still believe in Santa and friendly corporations, you'll love every greasy minute of it.
From "Santa's Disco" to "Jingle Those Bells" to the truly warped "Teddy and Betty Yeti," the eleven song's MO is tinny electronics and slurred but spiky vocals. And admit it: the holiday was dying for an ode to "Fruitcake".
The triple crown on this set, though, are "Crummy Christmas Tree," "Christmas Tears," and "Santa Je T'aime," any of which ought to be funny/creepy holiday faves for years to come.
If The Waitresses can live forever due to a Christmas song, than long live Superions! "Destination Christmas" is chock full of holiday nuggets of Christmas cheer and jaunty holiday derision. Sarcastic yes, but loving nonetheless, this is a record that wears its heart on its sleeve, even if that sleeve has a little gravy on it.
