Jingle Bells, holding tight to the one you love, singing puppets: no, it's not another lousy Christmas song, it's Piney Gir's "Outta Sight."
The Kansas-born (holler) pop songwriter assembled a team of sock puppets for her take on "Mystery Date," the video backdrop to unabashedly catchy "Outta Sight" from her album "Geronimo!" The track's strengths lie in her lyrical simplicity, a realness in that sweet voice, rounded out with bright arrangement power.
As for those love-longing sock puppets, we can only hope for a real match waiting somewhere under the mistletoe.
Out via Highline in October, "Geronimo!" was produced by Rob Campanella of the Brian Jonestown Massacre.
