It’s the holidays and New York City’s Golden Filter wants to share a special treat with their fans to close out 2010. Their cover of Psychic TV’s “White Nights” is available as a free download from their Web site.
Adding their own bright electro-pop twist to the dark song featuring words spoken by cult leader Jim Jones before that fateful night where he and all of his followers drank a little too much Kool-Aid. The line “Santa Claus is checking his list, going over it twice, seeing who is naughty and who is nice” was a rhyme used by Jones to spread paranoia to the children of the Peoples Temple. Pretty festive, huh?
Golden Filter’s debut album Voluspa is available for download on iTunes.
