Too Early For Xmas Post

It’s a few days before Thanksgiving, which means the XMas posts can start now…

  • KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas. Shins, Interpol, Modest Mouse, and a lot of mallpunk bands that sound alike.
  • Walkmen release a new XMas single as free download. The Walkmen – “Christmas Party”
  • 45 days, with only Pepsi Holiday Spice to drink.
  • Pitchfork on Band Aid 20: “Clumsy … lazy … disappointing.”
  • Indie-rock stocking stuffer? The Franz Ferdinand winter scarf.
  • Yesterday, Oprah gave her audience a bazillion early Christmas presents. They were FREAKING OUT. Exactly like this.
