The Polyphonic Spree – “A Working Elf’s Theme” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Texan good-vibes psych choir the Polyphonic Spree are back with their first album since 2007, and it’s a bit of a left turn: The yuletide collection Holidaydream: Sounds Of The Holidays Vol. One. There’s no massed sun-worshipping on their song “A Working Elf’s Theme.” Instead, it’s a short, jaunty song on which the only vocals are whistles. And its accompanying video, which you can see below, is a puppetry skit about elves in Santa’s workshop. Watch it below.

Holidaydream is out now on Kirtland.
