Siagon Kick guitarist Jason Bieler has a gorgeous voice and as leader of the offshoot band Owl Stretching, he shows it in full glory.
Let’s be real here- Christmas songs can be cliché’ and so help me God when Mariah Carey gets a hold of one its ear torture
Rarely do we get a song that is rather funny and irreverent that isn’t annoying. This is it.
Saigon Kick hasn’t been around in 20 years but are reportedly going to tour again soon. (Please no spandex) and this little side projector of Bielers is awesome.
He spoke with BW & BK a music site and said the following:
“Owl Stretching is me working with different musicians, some of them older and more experienced, some new guys, and constantly messing with it and evolving with it. Because I own a label and a studio, I don’t really have to do anything. It’s been the most fun, and the most dangerous in a sense, because I really don’t care. I can do what I want with whoever I want and how I want along with the people working with me, with no real justification for it. I’m not concerned about whether radio will like it or being able to tour with it. We’re just making music that we think is cool for that moment. We’ve only done a few things so far, but the diversity of Owl Stretching makes Saigon Kick look like a death metal band (laughs).”
I like that they put (laughs), made me feel like I was right there with them.
It’s streaming below and seriously its fantastic.
