Not sure if this is an original or a cover, but “Dear Santa” by Mr. Little Jeans (a.k.a. Monica Birkenes) is a good addition to the Christmas canon.

This week’s song is “Archie, Marry Me,” a bit of joyful power pop from the Toronto band Alvvays. The song reminds me of Camera Obscura, which is never a bad thing, and I like the way vocalist Molly Rankin sings “Archie.” She’s also descended from The Rankin Family, because everyone in Canada is related somehow.
Anyhow, enjoy this matrimonial proposal:
Just in time for Thanksgiving, the Ottawa-based electronic powwow act A Tribe Called Red released the free track “Burn Your Village to the Ground.”
Another week, another recommendation for an Icelandic rock band. “Lífsins Ólgusjór” by Samaris is inspired by 19th-century Icelandic poetry and laid over a reggae beat. Check out their recently released second album Silkidranga for more.
Prince released two new albums at the end of September, Art Official Age under his own name and with the band 3rdEyeGirl, Plectrum Electrum. Both albums contain a version of the song “FUNKNROLL.” While the version below is from Art Official Age, overall Plectrum Electrum is by far the better album.
Enjoy the groove.
