Favorite winter (Christmas) albums

1. Drive Like Jehu - Yank Crime
2. Manhattan Strings - A Manhattan Strings Christmas
3. Guided By Voices - Propeller
4. Sufjan Stevens - Christmas EPs
5. Burl Ives - Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

I haven't listened to Yank Crime in a while (bad call!) but now that the weather is turning its definitely required listening. Yank Crime, which is probably my favorite album of all time, is definitely my favorite driving-in-snow album of all time. Its the perfect album to listen to while driving down the highway at some odd hour (6 am, 1am) with snow whipping around in the wind.

Note to self: if we get to record more at 709 this winter, Yank Crime should be blasting while we setup and tear down.

checking in w/ the headaches

I don't have a lot to contribute to the blogosphere these days as I'm really spending most of my previously "free music finding" time on The Headaches. We've played a handful of shows now and it feels good - a few more and I think we'll really know what we're doing.

We hope to start recording an album soon and I'll post updates here as we have them.
