San Antonio trio Girl In A Coma has an early Christmas gift for you! The band is sharing their version of Elvis’ “Blue Christmas”. The king himself would shed a tear at hearing Nina Diaz’s inimitable voice! The song and their punk take on “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” are both on Blackheart Records’ A Blackheart Christmas, which features the labels stellar roster including The Vacancies and the legendary Joan Jett of course! Check out a stream of the track HERE and we encourage you to post and share. Please let us know if you’re interested in posting the MP3 as well!
The band recently put out a covers album, Adventures in Coverland, to great acclaim. The covers include distinct takes on Bowie, Joy Division, Buffalo Springfield and Patsy Cline among others. An acoustic version of their song “BB” and a new original Girl in a Coma song, “Yo Oigo,” commissioned by Robert Rodriguez for his film “Machete” are also included. The band displays their reverence for Selena’s music with their amped-up reworking of “Si Una Vez,” a stunning highlight of the record, and were honored to perform the song at the 2010 Tejano Music Awards.
You can also see Robert Rodriguez’ video for their cover of Bowie’s Labyrinth anthem “As the World Falls Down” here and a hot pin up inspired video directed by bassist Jenn Alva for their version of Patsy Cline’s “Walkin’ After Midnight” here.
Having previously toured with and been championed by Morrissey, Sia, The Pogues, Cyndi Lauper, and Tegan and Sara the band just wrapped up their Fall tour with some dates alongside The Dresden Dolls.
