So, this happened.

Jesus Christ, it's Christmas time. I do believe tomorrow is the day to bust out the partridge in a pear tree.

In any case, it's time to post something new from Sam Mickens. It seems he recorded a Christmas album for his pal Zac Pennington (Parenthetical Girls) last year, and as of today, it's been released for the masses to enjoy. "I'll Be Home for Christmas" is particularly nice.

For the sake of equality, I'm still waiting for a good novelty Chanukah song to be made. In the meantime, here's a picture of Paul Stanley. To fill the hole.

Fuckin' THIS.

Normally, I'd tell you to use your donation money on the crucial stuff - food banks, medical research, fluffy animals, etc. This time, however, I'm going to put a good bit of effort into suggesting that you make a contribution to a musical cause. Jherek Bischoff (previously of artsy Seattle groups the Dead Science and the Degenerate Art Ensemble, also both excellent) has put out a few good solo albums since the Dead Science apparently broke up (see guitarist Sam Mickens, transplant to Brooklyn). Bischoff's going to be putting together a live show with the Wordless Music Orchestra, and collaborators like Mirah, David Byrne, and Greg Saunier, as part of the Ecstatic Music Festival, set to occur in Manhattan on February 4. He needs your money.

He's trying to raise $5000 in order to fly out all necessary parties. Help a brother out. The incentives he's giving away as thanks for donations are pretty worthwhile, so think of this as buying music. Which is something you used to do, anyway. Plus, he's a Virgo, which means he puts a lot of care into his work. You know.

Proof of how rad he is:
