Pick of the Week: Tie between Endangered Ape’s (and company…) Holiday track “Last Shitmas” (recorded with many very very good friends, a pint of grown-up egg nog and around a hand held voice recorder with real live sleigh bells. E Ape, you are holiday spirit personified. xo) and Rah Rah’s “Tentacles” (which is a song I cannot get sick of, no matter how hard I try.)

Also, check out CBC Radio 3’s music news. A good source for a smattering of interesting things. That is, if you haven’t already heard about it on Twitter.

Last night, I joined Lethbridge lo-fi favorites Endangered Ape and a few special guest’s to record a soon-to-be classic Christmas song. 6 takes, 5 glasses of grown- up egg nog and 1 Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer claymation special later we put together a memory which may take years to forget.

Infused with real live sleigh bells and enough Christmas cheer to make even Santa want to throw up, this track is nothing but sheer love and happiness.

Lyrics and track available at E Ape’s blog.

But if you can wait, I will be airing it tonight on CKXU during my  live radio show tonight.
