Off of his current album, Come Back Shane, “Gunslinger” from Samson The Truest finds this unassuming Brooklyn-based poet teetering between vanity and insecurity as he tries to hold onto the affection of another man’s wife. At once endearing and forbidden, the track feels very much like a stolen glance at the private ramblings of a man who has built himself a rickety house in the space that occupies the perpetual middle.

Just in time for the Holidays, Fortunate Ones have recorded a quirky and spirited rendition of Sufjan Stevens’ “Come On! Let’s Boogey to The Elf Dance!.” There’s a lighthearted timelessness to this track, so if you’re looking for alternatives to overplayed Christmas classics, look no further.
