"Holiday Road"

Okay, so this isn't in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, but it makes me think of the National Lampoon's series (the good ones, at least) and Christmas Vacation is one of two my go-to movies during the time of year. And apparently it is for the Walkmen too, since they decided to cover it as part of A.V. Club's Holiday Undercover Series.

The Walkmen cover "Holiday Road"

Wondering what the other movie is? The Ref with Denis Leary. "Do you know what this family needs? A mute." Classic!

New music

Let's kick this off with a cool video for the alternate version of "Terrible Love." I dig the way it's shot and edited and think the end does a pretty good job of capturing the energy of The National in concert (without actually being there, of course).

  • The National, "Wake Up Your Saints," High Violet expanded editions (out now), Troubled Souls Unite
  • The Low Anthem, "Ghost Woman Blues," Smart Flesh (Feb 22nd), TwentyFourBit
  • PJ Harvey, "Written on the Forehead," Let England Shake (Feb 14th), The Sky Report
  • Noah and the Whale, "Wild Thing," Last Night on Earth (March 2011), TwentyFourBit
  • The Dears, "Blood," Degeneration Street (Feb 15th), Quick Before It Melts
