The Sads are a Prague band (and namesake song recorders) fronted by my good friend Steven Rusling, who'll be contributing a guest entry this month. This is the final track from their new album, the band at their most Magnetic Fieldsian. Steve says:
I originally wrote it as a fast jangley happy sounding Phil Spector type number. Then, possibly, now that I think about it, because I wouldn't know how to record that, I slowed it down and weirded it up a bit, which maybe changed the landscape a bit.
For the record, She'll Grow Back is officially neutral on the topic of cussing in Christmas music -- I don't wanna encourage people to shout obscenities into a mike while chimes and sleighbells fill the track, but I'm all about freedom too. Just be warned: this song has a 12-letter word in it that starts with the letter M.
