Though Halloween might have passed us by a few weeks ago, I wanted to share this cool freebie that I learned about from the Gothic/Ambient group called Season Of Ghosts. As a treat for their fans they’ve offered up a cover of “Sally’s Song” from the hit Tim Burton film “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and to receive the track all you need to do is sign up for the bands mailing list. In my humble opinion there are worse things a music fan can do than this so give it a shot,. You can also listen on their Soundcloud in case you don’t think you have any additional device or cloud space. So just how is this free track anyway? Let’s get to that part now.
As it’s been a very long time since I have seen the Burton film, I went to YouTube.com to hear the original song once more to get it back into my head and after a couple of minutes doing the refresher thing I focused on the Season Of Ghosts rendition. Musically this is nice and haunting and it should be nothing less than that when it all comes to this particular presentation. Vocally, the bands founder Sophia Aslanides is excellent and showcases a truly beautiful register. It’s just a shame that the song is only about two minutes in length. I’m going to keep Season Of Ghosts on my mental radar and hope to hear more from them in the future. Hopefully they have NYC on their own gig adventures list and if so I will plan on being there.
