Live Ledge #360: New Releases/Rocking Christmas

Even though last week's show went almost a full hour past its normal time there were quite a few unplayed songs left over. The first half of tonight's show empties the folder and includes new tracks by Jeff Tweedy, Art Brut, Matthew Sweet, and awesomely-named Jagger Holly.

The second half comprises some of the better new Christmas tunes released in the last few weeks. The Old 97's and JD McPherson created full albums of newly-created holiday tunes, and they're joined by tunes by The Minus 5, The Monkees, CJ Ramone, and many others. Oh yeah, there's a punk rock version of Jingle Bells by William Shatner and Henry Rollins. Weirdness.

As always, I hope everybody discovers a band or two they've never heard before! You can find this show at almost any podcast site, including iTunes and Stitcher.
