Musical Taste: Happy Holidays

Well, it’s been a while since the last Musical Taste, so I thought I’d focus on some stuff that you should be picking up for the holidays as well as some of the more interesting recent musical happenings.

What should be checked off your holiday gift list for others:

These are just a few of the recent albums that I myself have had the pleasure of listening to, but there is a lot of new stuff out there. As for new Christmas albums, I’m probably not the best person to ask.

Beyond those releases, there are some fun videos to be found. My personal favorite is this video of Andrew WK and a mailman performing “Silent Night” as part of the Onion A.V. Club’s Holiday Undercover series.

You can check out more of the videos over at the A.V. Club’s website, including Shearwater, The Dresden Dolls and The Walkmen.

So that’s really it for this edition of Musical Taste. Have a good Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanzaa/Wintereenmas/Solstice/Holiday Break/any other holiday I forgot and have a Happy New Year.
