Damien Jurado takes on Vince Guaraldi’s yuletide classic, “Christmas Time Is Here.” Culled from 90% of your social circle’s favorite Christmas album, it’s a brave choice met with spirited results.  Jurado’s next full-length, Maraqopa — a collaboration with Richard Swift — is due out in February.  (via)

  3. Well done! He must be a little elf inside.

  4. Awesome. Catches the Guaraldi / Peanuts spirit

  5. What’s the point? You will never touch the spirit of this song and have no grounds to make this public, you sick son of a bitch. You butchered that Nick Drake song on the “Blindside” soundtrack of all places, and now you’ve gone and ruined another perfect song. Quit! Stop! No more! Cheap! Cheap! I hope you are not making money off of this.

  6. To the angry man from comment 5: That wasn’t Damien Jurado on The Blindside.. It was “The Book W/Jose Gonzolez.” Damien Jurado is pretty great if you like that sort of thing.. If you don’t.. then write angry posts.. but at least make them accurate. If only we all had your distinguished taste in music… you’re probably breaking shit listening to gwar right now..
