the most excellent fellas in the walkmen have compiled a most excellent christmas music mix available for download. many of the songs sound like vinyl rips, carrying with them enough warm snaps, crackles, and pops to make you feel like you're bundled up next to an open fire. or like your ear is next to a bowl of rice krispies. get them over at the band's blog.

i'm a little late to the party on this one, as sharon van etten's praises seem to have been sung by most already. but better late than never, i suppose.
not sure how to best describe why female singer-songwriter sharon van etten is worth noting. it's not that singer-songwriters aren't worth noting, it's just that i don't know what sets one apart from another. it's hard to put a finger on. the nature of the performers within the genre is so homologous, you know? maybe it'd be better if you just gave it a listen.
