This year's top holiday duet doesn't feature Mariah Carey or Will Ferrell. It's Rodney the Mailman [local news]
and Andrew WK [original]
, live from the Chicago offices of the Onion AV Club in their Holiday Undercover project.
In typical Andrew WK style, a slightly... different version
is also available.
But this is not Rodney's first appearance -- nor are these covers few and far between. [more inside]

Amanda Palmer, of Dresden Dolls fame, returns to her high school
in Lexington, MA to assist with an original, student-written play. Running May 7-9th at Lexington High School
, the play, entitled "With The Needle That Sings in Her Heart", is inspired by (and features live music from) Neutral Milk Hotel's In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
, and is about "Anne Frank as imagined by an artist, and about how Anne uses her imagination and fantasy-mind to escape the horrors she experiences in a death camp." [more inside]

Neutral Milk Hotel demos, videos, and bootlegs.
Brainchild of enigmatic, now-reclusive singer/songwriter Jeff Mangum
(not Magnum!), the "fuzz-folk" project known as Neutral Milk Hotel began and ended in the 90s and only released two LPs
, but is still held as a touchstone by many indie rock critics
More live recordings
can be found at the site for Elephant 6
, the collective which included NMH and other bands
like Beulah, Circulatory System, Elf Power, and Apples in Stereo.
The complete discography
and more MP3s. Some lyrics
