Foxtails Brigade Beautifully Expresses Being 'Not Really in the Christmas Mood'
Does Christmas make you feel like sighing? Us too. So we're sort of enamored with the holiday melancholy of "I'm Not Really in the Christmas Mood This Year," a beautiful new video and song from the Bay Area's Foxtails Brigade. The song itself -- plaintive and precious and old-timey as it is -- is enough to get excited about, but, well, we love the noncommittal holiday spirit of the video: Smash the train! Let those candles go out! Keep the lights low! Who needs a Christmas party!?
Well, maybe everyone? Or, perhaps, no one. Either way, we see no reason why this shouldn't be immediately added to the canon of holiday music -- its ambivalence is perfect for a year like 2011. Check out the video after the jump and see what you think.
