Shinyribs (from the album The Kringle Tingle available on Mustard Lid Records)
There are stars of every season, and no matter how the holiday season is celebrated, everybody knows the man from the great white North Pole. Shinyribs borrows a couple tracks from tradition, penning a few of his own love letters to Santa with his original words on his seasonal release, The Kringle Tingle. The theme is clear as Shinyribs promises that “Santa Comes to Atlanta” and foregoes the chimney for a clandestine entry in “Back Door Santa” as he re-works Soul on a couple of homemade songs borrowing Funky rhythms from James Brown for “Santa’s Got a Brand New Bag” and wrapping the music of TLC’s “Waterfalls” up as “Don’t Go Chasing Santa Claus”.
A love story finds its way onto The Kringle Tingle as two souls follow the glow of ‘some shitty Christmas lights’ into the tale of “Christmas Time in Bossier City” as the soundtrack swirls in eddies of soft Soul and Shinyribs leads a salvation seeking conga line into a tent show, shaking a tambourine for the Gospel Blues of “Last Month of the Year”. Memories of Peanuts past are the gateway into The Kringle Tingle as the album opens with “Linus and Lucy” while Shinyribs decorates with Tex Mex for “Xmas on the Isthmus” and locks the color wheel on blue for Charles Brown’s “Please Come Home for Christmas”.
