too much typing—since 2003


Two Holiday Tunes

We're finally home after the annual whirlwind tour of relatives, and so it is that this song by Testa Rosa is most apt: "I Want to Be Alone on Christmas (Here with You)" (Testa Rosa's self-titled CD nearly made my top 20 this year; it's certainly one of the better releases by Milwaukee bands this year).

And in a rather different mood: A.C. Newman's been busy lately, pumping out new tunes - here's one of the most recent, called "Joseph, Who Understood" (it's one of two b-sides for the holiday-esque EP from The New Pornographers - a-side is Dan Bejar's "The Spirit of Giving").
