about

This unsettling rendition of the Christmas classic was arranged, recorded and mixed in 48 hours in December 2016.

lyrics

god rest ye merry gentleman
let nothing you dismay
remember christ the savior
was born on christmas day
to rescue us from satan's power
when we had gone astray
oh, tidings of comfort and joy

from god our heavenly father
a blessed angel came
and unto certain shepherds
gave tidings of the same
that unto us a child was born
the son of god by name
oh, tidings of comfort and joy
comfort and joy
oh tidings of comfort and joy

will you keep me company?
(tidings of comfort and joy)

will you keep me company?
(tidings of comfort and joy)

will you keep me company?
(tidings of comfort and joy)

will you keep me company?
(tidings of comfort and joy)

cause this doesn't comfort me
(tidings of comfort and joy)

cause this doesn't comfort me
(tidings of comfort and joy)

cause this doesn't comfort me
(tidings of comfort and joy)

cause this doesn't comfort me

Distant, melodic, and at times, crushingly bleak, Young Elk take their more subtle musical cues from introspective americana, shoegaze, and minimalist 90’s indie rock, falling somewhere between Pedro The Lion, Low, and Slowdive.

Young Elk is Ezekiel J Rudick, Tony Reyes, Bruce Reed, and Nic Moen
