Rent A Cop

The ol’ A.V. Club is at it again, hosting a bunch of artists to do covers in their tiny, circular room. This time around, it’s a holiday theme and The Walkmen do a fine job of covering the classic “Holiday Road” from National Lampoon’s Vacation. It’s technically not a “holiday” song, but “holiday” is in the title, so that’s got to count for something, right? Find it here.

The ever magical, ever Icelandic Jónsi has a DVD of his amazing live show out, and it would make a lovely gift for an awesome-music-loving friend or family member this holiday season. During his tour, he also premiered a few new songs and you can download one of them here.

White Lies hails from London and pay homage to Henry Thomas‘s most iconic role in E.T. in their video for “Bigger Than Us”. I remember watching this scene and being pretty freaked out as a kid, but my love of Resse’s Pieces lingers to this day. Way to go product placement!

Another homage vid: Bad Ass Chick, American muscle car, blood. Radio FreQ‘s “Turn on the Radio” is definitely a nod to a certain director.
