Published Dec 06, 2010If that Christmas shopping is wearing you out and you need a breather, sit back and relax with Click Hear, and/or find some suitable jams for your next shopping adventure. Here's just a few of the latest music streams, downloads and videos that made it into the section last week.
First off, as if you weren't excited enough for the upcoming Feist documentary, Look at What the Light Did Now, we have a preview of the album component. So if you want a taste before the CD/DVD set is out tomorrow (December 7), come get it.
Then Ryan Lenssen of Most Serene Republic has remixed Ra Ra Riot's "Too Dramatic," the cheery, falsetto-laden track from The Orchard. Check out the stripped-down version that draws out the song's R&B influence with plenty of cool ambient reverb.
Hypnotic Toronto rockers the Skeletons Four had a strong debut with the oddly named album, AAAAAHHH!!!. Now the band are gearing up for the new album, Gravestone Rock, and a new track "Trap Door" is up for free download. Nice guy lite rockers, Coldplay are back as well, with a new Christmas single full of piano-driven cheer. And the Killers also have their "Boots" to spread a little of the holiday spirit.
Snoop Dogg made news last week when he dedicated his new single, "Wet," to recently engaged Prince William and Kate Middleton. The salacious track is meant to be played at the Prince's bachelor party. Finally, the first single from Iron & Wine's Kiss Each Other Clean entitled, "Walking Far From Home," is a soothing holiday gift that whips distorted organs, choir and conga drums.
For all of these streams, downloads, videos and more, check out the Exclaim! Click Hear section.
