Song of the day: "Just Like Christmas" by Low

Per the Guardian: "The best alternative Christmas records are those that don't aspire to rise above the shimmery sham of the thing and instead submerge themselves in the spirit. Low's Christmas or Sufjan Stevens's various festive collections come rug-wrapped with a wintry fragility, capturing a sublime seasonal mood rather than kow-towing to freeze-dried, end-of-year commercialism."

I'm not a big Sufjan fan, but that Low song, complete with sleigh bells, definitely puts me in the holiday spirit.
