Published Dec 20, 2010Christmas is just around the corner, but if that holiday stress has hit max capacity, take a needed timeout by visiting the Exclaim! Click Hear section. There you will find all the latest downloads, streams and videos, Christmas-related and otherwise.
First up, let Kanye West tell you about "Christmas in Harlem." The track is surprisingly good for a holiday-themed jingle and, as usual, finds Ye teaming up with a pile of guest stars. Next, Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood has been busy with his latest solo project: the score to Norwegian Wood, a film adapted from the Haruki Murakami novel of the same name. You can listen to a tempered acoustic track from the soundtrack called "Don't Read What Hasn't Been Baptized by Time."
Next, make some time to discover some good old-fashioned Canadiana by checking out Broken Social Scene's latest video for their single, "Texaco Bitches," and a new track dubbed "Stamp" from wild-rose-loving indie darlings Rural Alberta Advantage.
Also, get in touch with your inner '90s rock icon and discover some fresh R.E.M.. The band will be releasing a new album, Collapse Into Now, next year and have released a track from said album: anthemic single "Discoverer." And while we're decade-hopping, take a trip back to the '80s with the Gremlins-inspired video for Kid Cudi's new single, "All Along."
Finally, don't go away without checking out how comic makers Igloo Tornado have reinterpreted the relationship between rock titans Glenn Danzig and Henry Rollins. The cartoonists have created a holiday video where you can watch the duo indulge in some homoerotic Christmas celebrations. Yes, you read that right.
