Yeah, I’m still obsessed with this song. And I still can’t help but listen to the Cure and think they’re missing sound effects…

M.I.A. – “Paper Planes”

¬†While I’m at it, if you haven’t seen them, Animal Collective has two videos released from Strawberry Jam.

Christmastime is Here

December 13, 2007

As the holidays are approaching I’ve compiled a list of music to tide me over until New Years. I’m still looking around the interweb for anything else that catches my eye, but here’s a short list of christmas goodies:

  • Daniel Johnston’s “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”
  • Beck’s “The Little Drum Machine Boy”
  • of Montreal’s “My Favorite Christmas (In One Hundred Words or Less)”
  • Grandaddy “Alan Parsons in a Winter Wonderland”
  • James Brown “Santa Claus Goes Straight To The Ghetto”
  • My First Keyboard “Christmas Is Only Good If You’re A Girl (Boy)”
  • of Montreal’s “Christmas Isn’t Safe For Animals”
  • Queens of Sheeba “Christmas time Celebration”
  • the Olivia Tremor Control’s “Christmas With William S.”
  • Ringo Starr “I Wanna Be Santa Claus”
  • Arcade Fire’s “Jingle Bell Rock”
  • Tom Wait’s “Christmas Card From a Hooker In Minneapolis”
  • Summer Hymns “Santa Couldn’t Fit You Under My Christmas Tree”
  • T. Rex “Christmas Bop”
  • Major Organ and the Adding Machine “What A Wonder World”
  • Tiny Tim’s “White Christmas”
  • The White Stripe’s “Candy Cane Children”

And of course, no holiday season is complete without the corner stone of christmas soundtrack:

You hear me. Two more Prince covers from the psychedelic sultans that are of Montreal. “I Would Die 4 U” and “Baby I’m A Star” join “Purple Rain” in the Prince Songs Covered By of Montreal category, which I can only imagine is going to grow with this upcoming album. Head over to YANP for mp3s.

On a side note, check out the new ‘do on BP!

Remember the eponymous debut of Major Organ and the Adding Machine? Remember all of the message board rumors and youtube teasers announcing a film to accompany the album? Well as of this week, Orange Twin finally officially announced the psychedelic film trip starring the likes of Kevin Barnes and Jeff Mangum.
