Published Dec 19, 2012Christmas is nearly upon us, and musicians have been dropping seasonal treats left, right and centre. Another such goodie is Bay Area producer Wrathmatics' adorably butt-wrigglin' A Charlie Brown Beat Tape.
As you'd expect by the title, the mix is a boom-bap-indebted reworking of jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi's score to the A Charlie Brown Christmas special, and it injects "Greensleeves," "Linus and Lucy" and "Christmas Time Is Here" with dialogue snippets and hip-hop breaks. We encourage you to do your best awkward-as-hell Peanuts dance when you stream the tape via the player down below.
You can also grab the release at Wrathmatics' Bandcamp for whatever price you wish. Take note, though, that all monies will be donated to Adopt-a-Family.
