No, this is not your boarded-up, uninsulated and unspeakably lonely cabin on the coast chiming in; these words come from the band Beach House who have written and recorded a holiday song for you. And, as one might have guessed, it sounds like every track on 2008's Devotion (I always thought "Wedding Bell" would be fine if it were renamed "Sleigh Bell" and played once an hour between Thanksgiving and the New Year). Add it to your working playlist of indie and/or obscure and/or ironic (read: Wham!- "Last Christmas") songs to score the Yankee Swap/Ugly Christmas Sweater party you're throwing this weekend.
