Christmas Eve Music Picks!

Waiting out the clock today before the monstrous Christmas Eve/Christmas day festivities (ours starts at 3ish today and will continue through dinner tomorrow). In the meantime, here are some music picks of late... Kudos to my students, who are an endless source of good new music!

Stars - This group is an alternative version of the band, Broken Social Scene. Plus, they're Canadians! Which is always a plus...

St Vincent - The 4AD label continues to impress. Here's a great song from talented solo artist St Vincent (aka Annie Erin Clark, formerly of Polyphonic Spree)

Deerhunter - These guys are an enigmatic mystery for my middle-aged mind, but I like their music. They're so earnest!

Beach House - Yet another great band on the SubPop label, and yet another great find from KEXP's legendary DJ, John in the Morning. These guys opened for Vampire Weekend's latest tour.

Death Cab for Cutie - Here's a little alt-Christmas Carol to end this post. Merry Christmas all!
