Published Dec 14, 2010Winter's here and everything is moving a little slower, so why not kick back with a mug of hot cocoa and browse the Exclaim! Click Hear section? If you want to stay on top of the new downloads, streams and videos that have surfaced on the Internet the past week, this is the place to be.
First up, Jason Segel and Jack Black are great multi-taskers: While spreading Christmas cheer by releasing an adorably funny animated Christmas video entitled "Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy 2010," the duo are also using the download to raise money for charity by making the song available for download via iTunes. Next, 'tis the season for Godspeed You! Black Emperor fans to rejoice: the band recently played a holiday show in Minehead, England, and videos from said show have leaked online.
More reasons to be thankful this holiday season include the fact that Lil Wayne has been freed from Rikers Penitentiary and is back to doing what he does best. Check out his latest effort, the Nino Brown mixtape. For more sick beats, watch the video for Dr. Dre's "Kush" (ft. Snoog Dogg and Akon), featuring, well, what else but dollar bills, swanky clubs, private jets, and, of course, kush.
Next, Toronto's Crystal Castles have taken their tortured electro act mainstream with a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! It's worth watching, if only for the contrast between the dark rave exploding onstage and the relatively straight-laced ABC late-night crowd in the audience. Finally, don't go away before indulging in some Christmas nostalgia with the Futureheads' new video, "Christmas Was Better in the '80s." Not only is the song charming, but also the punk laments paired with nostalgic Christmas photos and videos make a good case for a good old-fashioned '80s Christmas. Now where's the time machine?
