Hometapes Records has compiled an impressive 21 tracks of Christmas songs! I naturally went to hear Wham's cover "Last Christmas" just to see what Zorch would do to the song. The result is a weird video-gamey version.

Louis Jones is Spectrals. His album, Bad Penny is described as a mixture of "soul, doo wop, and a garage rock" yet maintaining a pop sensibility.
For the holidays, Spectrals released "It's Christmas and I've Got Everything I Want" on Pitchfork.
The special 8-minute version "featuring some damaged dub at the end" is exclusive on the Pitchy website. I haven't heard of the radio version myself.
Comedians/music duo Joberg & Gurner is re-releasing their album Manhood on December 13th via Comedy Central. To promote it, check out their brand new video for "Christmas Lovin' Jew". It's everything you would expect from a song called "Christmas Lovin' Jew". Sucks to be jew!
Looking of their track listing ("The Dirty Sanchez", "Anniversary (Kiss Me Where I Pee)", "Manhood") it looks quite naughty and isn't necessary an xmas album.
I was happy to hear that they have toured with Stephen Lynch, who is quite the funnyman/singer (I have a few of his albums!)
