We've got something awesome for you today: a free download of a medley of several songs from The Nightmare Before Christmas performed by The Wicked with some help from members of The Venetia Fair (both bands have earned Song Of The Day honors here at Culture Brats). And you know what? It's really freaking awesome. It's creepy and spooky in all the right ways. The band is officially releasing it on their website on Halloween, but if you can't wait until then, you can download it here today for free so you can have it ready for your Halloween mix!
Here's the press release followed by the download:
Boston-based gypsy-punk band The Wicked just announced a release of their medley/cover of "The Nightmare Before Christmas" due out October 31st, 2012 via SwitchBitch Records as a free digital download. This genre-defying track presents a unique blend of inspiration, citing influences from The Dresden Dolls to Foxy Shazam.
The Wicked assembled in late August of 2011 as a duo and now operates as a solo act fronted by singer/songwriter Janele Mystique (18). With a revolving door of special guest appearances for live shows, every performance brings about a unique one-of-a-kind thrill. Janele immediately captures any audience with her strong Gwen Stefani-like pipes along with her aggressive guitar and piano skills.
This gypsy-punk cabaret based out of Salem, MA was quickly recognized by musician, studio, and label owner Michael Abiuso who signed The Wicked to SwitchBitch Records in early 2012. The Wicked recorded and released their full-length debut titled Never Trust The Dead August 9th and are now following up by treating their fans to a free digital download of "The Nightmare Before Christmas" medley/cover on Halloween. This track was performed by The Wicked/Janele Mystique with the assistance of Mr. Chark King (The Venetia Fair) on bass and Mike Abiuso who composed, performed, and produced the track at SwitchBitch Studios (Boston/Brooklyn).
