Deer Tick :: "Christmas All Summer Long"

A band doesn't need do much more than name-check my home state of Rhode Island in the first lyrical couplet of its Christmas song to get me in the holiday spirit. For Deer Tick, the spirit of the season is a skuzzed up rock song, with charging guitars and lyrics that sound like, and actually describe, flying around in the backs of cars. So it's not Mirah Carey or Bing Crosby, and it has an intentionally hard to ignore f-bomb, and the final motown tempo feels about as sentimental as putting a cigarette out on your forearm, but this is Christmas to Deer Tick. 'Tis the season for neat drinks and sentiment earned before it is felt.
