"80° Yuletide High," the single off the Swimming Machine's holiday EP, "This One's For Tina," was recorded live at Hourglass Studios in Wilmington, NC on Nov. 20, 2013. Percussion, backup vocals, and strings were overdubbed later.


It won't snow in December
It won't snow a whole year
It don’t snow at all here
It don't snow at all

Gather the ladder we got at the Sears
Fake felt-y snow, white wire deer
Untangle the garland and icicle lights
Khaki shorts, sleeveless sweater, staple gun and I'm sweatin'
Checkin' the bulbs and checkin' 'em twice
Santa cap, red and yellow; Santa hat perspiration
Dust it off and hang it up and drape it, tape it, tack it
I would love to tell you
"Oh, I could hold you warm at night"
Oh but, Baby, it ain't cold outside

This one's from Tina and this one's for Tina
It's tagged from Aunt Laura under the tree and
This one's "from" and this one's "for"
Wrappings collect for the cat on the floor
Cover your toes, air conditioner’s cold
Cat punctures paper and pounces on bows
Rip it open, rip it open, tear it, tear it, tell it,
I would love to tell you,
“Oh, I could hold you warm at night”
Oh, but, Baby, it ain't cold outside
Oh, an 80 degree Yuletide High
Oh, Baby, it ain’t cold outside

The Swimming Machine runs on combustion. Fill it with fuel – a blend of upright bass, sax, guitar, banjo, mandolin, violin, xylophone and trumpet. To ignite, whistle, shout, and sing. Oxygen is required. Stomp if it gives you any trouble. To get the pistons turning, stir in some tambourines, buckets, shakers, cymbals, spoons, a tin can and as many floor toms as you can get your hands on. ... more
