about

Originally released in late 2000 as a 5-song EP on Stereoriffic Recordings, I'm Dreaming of the Weisstronauts Christmas is an unusual one for the 'Nauts in that it features quite a bit of singing (the band is usually known as an instrumental ensemble). It is also the band's recorded debut.
In the winter of 2012, Pete, Jeff, George, Kevin, and Nate recorded three more seasonal tunes live, onstage at RedStar Union, in Cambridge MA. These songs, all staples of the group's notorious Annual Holiday Jubilees, were deemed quite appropriate for inclusion as "bonus-type tracks" and are presented here for the first time ever. One of these songs, "The Day Snowflakes Were Born" is a staple of the "song-poem" genre and was originally performed by Rodd Keith and the MSR Singers.

about

The Weisstronauts Boston, Massachusetts

The Boston-based Weisstronauts are a difficult-to-pigeonhole instrumental rock band employing three electric guitars.

"Then there’s the Weisstronauts, who toss major surf rock influences into a blender with everything else they’ve ever even sort of liked and pull out songs built on combinations that look insane on paper but absolutely kill once you hear them."
- Richard Bouchard
