It's turning out to be a good week for surrealistic Christmas cheer. First we've got Low playing at the Great American Music Hall tomorrow night in celebration of the reissue of their slowcore Christmas EP; tomorrow also sees the release of limited-edition holiday singles from the Bay Area's affiliated fuzzmongers Wooden Shjips and Moon Duo. Stream the former's jingles over at The Bay Bridged, and check out the latter's version of "Silver Bells," the perfect accompaniment to trimming your tree with amplified buzzsaws.
Also, just because we're in the holiday spirit, here's Vladimir Putin singing "Blueberry Hill." ("Like an overwhelming majority of people," he is quoted in The Lede, "I can neither sing nor play but I very much like doing it.")
It's a Festivus miracle!
---- Vladimir Putin should have been a music critic. Leave your denatured holiday standards on our Facebook page; follow us on Twitter and we'll sing you "Blueberry Hill," too.
