Happy Holidays!

So I'm just making it with the Christmas deadline because I started this post in the wrong blog, but it's still the holidays! Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but finals were brutal. But now it's break! Hooray! Lets celebrate with some xmas jamz.

In case you missed it, here was todays headline:

Santa 1; Martians 0.

I know it might be a little late for new Christmas music, but whatever, it's never too late for fly new tunes.

Of Montreal - Christmas Isn't Safe for Animals
Princess Superstar - I Hope I Sell a Lot of Records at Christmastime
Jason Anderson - Christmas and Pizza
Run DMC - Christmas in Hollis

Speaking of fly new tunes, Animal Collective's ninth full-length Merriweather Post Pavilion is being released on January 20, BUT they have decided to push up the release of their album on vinyl with a digital download coupon! I have had the pleasure of getting a listen to the whole album, and let me tell you, get excited. It has a very Beach Boys feel, if the Beach Boys did (more) drugs. If you remember their album art, this should come as no surprise.

So as my gift to you, here is a sneak peak of their new album, and their song Lion in a Coma, which has a nice use of the Didgeridoo.
