​Cassie Ramone, a founding member of both the Vivian Girls and the Babies, gets into her version of the holiday spirit on Christmas in Reno. Replacing the usual bouncy pep of "Sleigh Ride" or the earnestness of "I'll Be Home For Christmas" is the strong sense of dispassionate ennui that can pervade the holiday season for many. So if your eyes roll as the same six songs bombard your ears in the aisles of CVS, this spaced-out, detached look at the reality of the season might be for just right you. It's due out Friday, December 11 on Burger Records.

Christmas in Reno can be ordered from Burger Records.
