Christmas is just around the corner, and our long time love affair with Brooklyn’s POP ETC only grows stronger as the trio, formerly from my beloved college town of Berkeley, drenches us with holiday nostalgia on an EP named ‘A POP ETC Christmas’. It’s a three track release from the indie band on which they cover some seasonal classics and offer up a new original. As someone who grew up watching the various Charlie Brown specials that would always hit the television around this time of year, I couldn’t help but gravitate towards POP ETC’s dreamy chill version of Christmas Time Is Here, from Charlie Brown’s Christmas Special. Stream the mellow treat via Spotify above, or Soundcloud below. The EP’s original track is a perky strumming, warm embracing gem named All I Want For Xmas (Just My Baby). POP ETC also covers Paul McCartneys’ Wonderful Christmastime. Stream those tracks below alongside the Soundcloud stream for the Charlie Brown cover. Lead singer Chris Chu says about the EP: ‘Since I was a kid I always loved Christmas songs. I fell in love with Vince Guaraldi’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” soundtrack from an early age and I’ve listened to it every Christmas I can remember. I’ve always had the idea of trying to record a few Christmas songs myself, but for some reason or another things always got too busy around the holidays and I lost track of it… until now!” The EP is available from iTunes, here.

This is for all the peepz in the bay (and outside the bay) who go to Outside Lands every year in August. Here’s the sweet, solid lineup for 2013, just announced this morning (and more to be added later, I’m sure). As always, I’ll be there all three days, running around, catching as much excellent music as I can.

For Australia’s Triple J Radio, Flight Facilities put together this awesome mix. It’s the first of their decade mixes, this one covering 1972-1982. The next one, 1982-1992, will be available in early February. This is a pretty cool treat. It’s not often we get talented musicians remixing some seriously good old skool music like this. Oldies sure are goodies.
