Parlor Tricks contributed three songs to Garagista Music’s 2007 Holiday CD Compilation
Over the course of five days in July 2007, dozens of musicians wandered in and out of Second Act Studio in Irvington, NY to record holiday favorites. Parlor Tricks contributed one original—Under the Tree, which has been heavily featured by Rumblefish—and two rocking covers, Away in a Manger and Deck the Halls. All three songs are what you would only expect to hear from a band hardened to sappy sentiment and steeped in a musical stew equal parts Josephine Baker and Ramones. They are, in short, completely unexpected.
