Damn That Holiday: devil.7

Perhaps it’s but geography, but “The Devil’s Bones (A Deserter’s Christmas)” has spooky musical saw noises. Ratatosk makes this horror warning out of an Old World waltz.

Grant Raymond Barrett tinkles the ivories with jelly roll blues for the classy/silly “The Devil Takes a Holiday.” Too good to let the leap bother me.

U.S. Christmas garbles the hillbilly country “Devil’s Flower in Mother Winter,” but it’s clear this is a dark worry and a frigid fear.

Das Blankout croons the folk “A Devil’s Christmas” with a grudge. It’s about breakup. Grumble grumble grumble.
