Aaron Perrino (The Sheila Divine, Dear Leader, Aaron & the Lord) just released what he described as a "... fun non-christmas sounding christmas song." "Oh Children Go Where I Send Thee" is credited to Aaron & the Lord, and it's a dark sounding holiday song that grooves insanely hard. This is the kind of Christmas song most people you know are going to hate since it is so dark and doesn't sound like a holiday song at all. There is nary a jingle bell to be heard, but there are references to "666." But, for those of us with darker sensibilities who maybe do things like drive our families to Salem annually for a picture with Krampus and not Santa, "Oh Children Go Where I Send Thee" is perfect.
You can listen to "Oh Children Go Where I Send Thee" below. The song is available via Aaron Perrino's Bandcamp. For more on Aaron & the Lord, check out the band on Facebook and Instagram. You'll have two opportunities to see Aaron & the Lord this week as they're playing Fete Music Hall in Providence on December 14 and an excellent triple bill on the 15th with Hallelujah the Hills and Eldridge Rodriguez.
