With the annual Fool’s Gold holiday jam mere days away (RSVP or yr assed out!) what better time to round up some festive tunes and mixes while there’s still time to enjoy em? Hit the jump for some recent favorites and a special seasonal FG throwback.
Kanye West f. CyHi Da Prynce “Christmas In Harlem” – this title and no Killa? Update: Killa.
Mayer Hawthorne “Christmas Time Is Here” – Charlie Brown cover from our Discotheque tourmate. Says Mayer: “All the best Christmas songs were written by Jews, and Chanukah songs suck. This is my favorite Christmas tune, sung over the Vince Guaraldi instrumental.” (Editors note: Beck “Little Drum Machine Boy” is a Chanukah song that does not suck).
Saint Etienne “No Cure For The Common Christmas” – Sarah Cracknell, still killing it.
Annie Lennox Christmas Jukebox – she bad too.
The Bird Peterson Holiday Spectacular – xmas beats from Bird Pete.
Low Budget Crew A Low Budget Christmas – more holiday rapstrumentals. RoddyRod’s Donny Hathaway chop is particularly fun.
Mattie Safer “O Holy Night” – Mattie links up with Dances With White Girls and they get their gospel on.
