Recorded last year, Cleveland noise-makers Swindlella are using the time of the year to release a special Christmas album called Purr rump pum pum pum. In comparison to their last release, the Titanic concept album A Woman’s Heart Is An Ocean of Secrets, these Xmas tracks are low-key for Swindlella’s standards, and you might even call them catchy at times. They still take the opportunity to go into noise frenzies in opener “Rudolf Hitler” and standout “Jingle Bells.” In between those fits, Swindlella shows a love for the jazz on their piano-and-bells cover of Vince Guaraldi Trio’s “Christmas Time Is Here.” Other Christmas songs represented are “Frosty The Snowman,” “First Noel,” “Silent Night,” and the album closer “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” Check out a few of the tracks above, and download the full album by clicking on the album art above!
