Product Description

Marah made a Christmas album for a number of reasons: (1) To make a Yuletide record we had to record it in the middle of the blistering NYC summer heat. That gave us the excuse to decorate our apartment studio with string lights and plastic snowmen and celebrate Christmas in July too! (2) Really good holiday songs allow decent "liberal" folks to celebrate certain "conservative" values like family, friends, eating dinner together, roasting chestnuts and home fires burning without employing tactics like tightening borders, tax cuts for the elite, veiled racism, and Old Testament brainwashing! (3) A great Noel number is your best shot at being played on the radio! To hear your own Christmas recording in the car on the drive to Grandma's snowy farm would be the absolute bomb! (4) Christmas music makes most people really happy. That's the whole point of music in the first place. So, get A Christmas Kind of Town and get in the spirit! Yep Roc. 2005.

Hark! The Philly Brothers Sing! Introducing a 20-song holiday feast that, while it's as out of right field as Mannheim Steamroller remaking White Light/White Heat, is the perfunctory accompaniment to your Bing Crosby and Johnny Mathis wintertime mash. Prolifically concurring with its fifth record If You Didn't Laugh You'd Cry, Marah integrates E Street soul and 6 Train rock-and-roll into a stew of old-time favorites and newly composed originals, toasting the celebration with friends and family in a loose-knit routine of music and parodies. Centered on their adopted hometown of New York, the Bielanko brothers liken the Big Apple to a "yuletide merry-go-round" in "New York is a Christmas Kind of Town" and offer up "a glass of cheer" in "Holly Jolly Christmas," a chug-a-long number that practically begs for the Pogues to cover. "Baby It's Cold Outside" is a seductive back-and-forth duet (with guest Christine Smith) and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Xmas" turns into a Peanuts-like sing-a-long, and by New Year's, when your "Auld Lang Syne" is an instrumental Dublin pub romp, you'll thank Marah for making this the most wonderful time of the year. --Scott Holter

Some of this happy album sounds recorded live, but I would have loved to have seen Marah actually doing it up, maybe in a beery little dive bar, because it's got a great concept and good, cheery Christmasy stuff. But, I'm afraid, something, as so often happens, gets a little lost in the studio. It's a little dry, a little forced, plenty of good will, but could have used just a wee bit more. I like Marah, and I'm digging this as I clean off a table I haven't cleaned off in years so I can put down some food for my girlfriend, who wouldn't know my house straightened up if it dropped on her head. Marah is carrying me along here and I'm getting into the feel a little bit more for the holiday. I got some good booze and some cheese and salami and some more booze and some sweet treats and we should have a pretty good time. Merry Christmas to these guys and thanks for the fun album. Just wish you had recorded it live at Lauterbachs, an old Brooklyn hole back in the 80s that is the true ghost of rock n' roll christmas' past.

Great album. Shows amazing range for the Bielankos and friends. Particularly amazing is Christine Smith on "Baby, It's Cold Outside." Wow. And, they wrote two bonafide original, great Christmas songs "Christmas Kind of Town" (New Yorkers all about you) and "Christmas with the Snow."

Yes, Serge sounds a little cheesy as announcer but it is fun cheesy. The guy is nuts for Christmas. And, getting to listen to Dave sing "Have Yourself a Merry Little Xmas" and "Holly Jolly Christmas" is a real Christmas treat.

Fun stuff, but don't let this be your introduction to Marah. It is fun though
