I think winter finally struck Los Angeles as it’s a soaking wet mess outside and it’s pretty dang cold. But what better weather to listen to Vince Guaraldi Trio’s A Charlie Brown Christmas? It’s my absolute favorite X-Mas album and has been forever now. There’s just something so timeless about it.

Following up after that is Charlotte Gainsbourg’s new one IRM, which is definitely Beck feeling in every sense. After that is the newest from The Cave Singers, which is shaping up to being one of my favorites of the year. The new Toro y Moi keeps me dancing, Holiday Shores are an absolute treat as are Princeton. I listen to Sufjan’s BQE a lot, it’s all instrumental and reminds me vaguely of the Charlie Brown X-Mas album. Finishing everything off was a bit of Jens Lekman who’s always good for a rainy day.

Add me on Last.fm and let me know what you’ve got playing this week in the comments.
