Single Serving of Holiday Cheer: Landlady Covers 'Please Come Home For Christmas'
    • THURSDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2014

    Brooklyn based outfit Landlady is difficult to pin a genre to. At their core is soul, but there are pounding drum beats to contend with, and the sonic spectacle of classic pop, not to mention the pop friendly depth of character in lead singer Adam Schatz' voice. Sylvan Esso's soul soaked electro pop is a bit easier to classify. Amelia Meath's gelatinous croon spreads over the tracks like jam, with moments of aerated lightness. Their experimental take on a classic makes for a perfect holiday union.

    Schatz' honey smoked croon and Meath's sweeter side bring a lovely dash of egg nog cheer to Charles Brown's classic "Please Come Home For Christmas," famously covered by the Eagles. Landlady's version is a little something else. For those who frown upon festivus, or just generally aren't jingled by bells, give it a shot. In place of Brown's punctuating bells, Landlady inserts an even more purposeful art-folk woodblock. The song becomes one of playful pleading, and leaves the melancholy loneliness behind. Go on, give it a whirl, and then compare it to Charles Brown's classic version, and the Eagles desperate funk, and tell me I was right.
