Danielle LoPresti: I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
Because it’s all about the kids when it comes down to it, right? One of my favorite covers of a Christmas classic.
Buy This Now: Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing
This band is “holy shit good”. https://wisc.bandcamp.com/album/wolves-in-sheeps-clothing
Tunesday: The Minutemen, Corona
If you kids ever wonder why we olden shits scoff at your Beeber and all that empty Disney crap, it’s because the music we played to make the double-hung windows shake was unimaginably awesome. You know nothing about the 1980s–Patti Labell and Duran Duran? I never once saw a girl wearing leg warmers on the…
Tunesday: Leonard Cohen, Hallelujah!
This is for you, Robin. But that doesn’t mean we can’t all enjoy it! Well I’ve heard there was a secret chord That David played and it pleased the Lord But you don’t really care for music, do you? Well it goes like this: The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift…

My favorite music is probably either from that transition to “college alternative” via New Wave via Punk (if you can’t guess my age from that, shame on you) or old school country western, and the modern “Americana” music that draws so much spirit from it, but I…
Tunesday: Jill Sobule Wants “Our America Back”
Jill Sobule always brings the goods. She’s funny, she’s cute, and she’s crazy cool. She says a bad word in this song, too–fair warning. She does THE BEST concerts, too.
Tunesday: X, True Love
Damn. Never saw this before, and it’s awesome–though something tells me the band didn’t take making videos too seriously. And a bonus because I love you:
