New York's own Hot Peas N Butter are continuing the promotional push for their new CD, PUTTING OUR HEADS TOGETHER. Here is the video for their song "Amistad" (produced with and featuring Dan Zanes and co-head Peaster Danny Lapidus). Band mate Francisco Cotto performs on bass. While film mavens know the Spielberg film of the same name (based on the true story of a slave ship revolt), "amistad" translates to "friendship" from Spanish. A central theme for Hot Peas N Butter, the song will help warm your chilly autumn.
The Good Ms. Padgett is back with a new video for the title track from her album, IF WE MUST WE MUST! To be honest, the CD was released quite a way back but it's refreshing to see someone reconnecting with their audience even after such a time lapse. When watching the video, you will understand that the beach/fantasy cleaning sequences could not be shot last winter. Yes, beach/fantasy cleaning sequences.

The pride of Montana, the Salamanders, are releasing a new holiday song this week. Wait for it – "Pirate Santa" manages to whip up Christmas in a whole new way. Jason Didner took Santa surfing off the Jersey coast. Now Cowboy Andy and company are taking him to the High Seas:
On Christmas morning the crew came to the deck
And all gave a shout of joy “what the heck?’
Cause the main mast was lit up like a Christmas tree
With presents all around for everybody
You can find the tune on Bandcamp, iTunes, and CDBABY. Yo ho ho ho!
