Shout Out Louds

In the Morning, Before Work

So it’s X-mas-time. I have mixed emotions about this time of year. Things I like include time off from work, large amounts of tasty food, Band Aid, Elf, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and the hopes of catching the original version of “Christmas Coming to the USA”. I have scoured the internets and cannot find a video of the original version. There are lots of the follow-up versions, but no O.G. What’s up with that? Anyway, it turns out Julian Casablancas digs this SNL hit too and has covered it for a 7″ release. I’m pretty sure I don’t need to link to it since it’s all over the interwebs.

Weezer and Kenny G. Really.

A video for “Thunderbird” from the Golden Filter. I’m liking these guys a lot.

And another band I’m enjoying these days, Fan Death with their vid for “Cannibal”.

Chunklet has a most excellent 40-minute mp3 clip of nothing but witty banter from Fugazi shows. It is pretty hilarious. Love those guys.

Here’s a video from Fanfarlo. Check out their site. They have a fun advent calendar on it!

Shout Out Louds have been working on their new album in Seattle and the video for “Walls” chronicles a bit of it for us. The new song is promising.

Jónsi from Sigur Rós will be releasing a solo album soon by the title of Go. Go to his site and you can get a free mp3 in exchange for your email addy. This track has my all antsy-pansty to hear the full album.
