Brett Dennen “The Holidays Are Here (And We're Still At War)” from The Holidays Are Here (And We're Still At War) - Single (Dualtone Music Group 2006) —Still. Kinda. I guess. Or at least meddling. Or cleaning up. Or something.Buy it!
The Goodtime Engineers “Gimme Your Love” from Patience of the Saints (The Goodtime Engineers 2010) N —Kickin' it out on New Year's Eve at the St. Clair Bowling Alley in St. Clair, MO (NOT to be confused with St. Clair Lanes in St. Clair County, IL!!!)Buy it!
The Autumn Defense “Don't Know” from Once Around (Yep Roc Records www.yeprocrecords.com 2010) N —It's so simple, yet maybe the saddest line in any song released this year: "I won't know where you are anymore." Doesn't hurt that it's a gorgeous melody either.Buy it!
Jimmy Smith “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” from Christmas Cookin' (Verve 1992) —I misspoke on the air: This was released at PRECISELY the right time to soundtrack a gloriously f**ked-up Christmas party at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce!Buy it!
