Holiday Vinyl Records
Merry Christmas From...Available again! 333 copies were printed on red vinyl and included as part of the White Stripes 2010 Holiday Merchandise package, but copies are now to be had on black vinyl. The A-side was originally recorded in 1998 and its title has been appropriated by Stripes fans as a term to describe themselves as a group. The b-side features Meg singing an a cappella version of Silent Night coupled with Jack reading the Story of the Magi from the Bible. The whole thing is a warming, heartfelt pile of Christmas goodness...dig in!1. Candy Cane Children

Jesus Christ / A Marigny XMasJohn Ralston (Vagrant Records) releases two alternate universe classics just in time for the Christmas Holidays. "Jesus Christ" may be the most daring A-side we have ever heard with it's drones, screeches & clanging recalling the glory days of the Velvet Underground. "A Marigny Xmas" is an alarmingly gorgeous soft & tender swaying strum-drilled nugget: A true New Orleans heart breaker. Both feature the downright spectacular rhythm section of bassist Dan Bonebrake and drummer Deric (no relation to Charles) Dickens. 7" Limited to 300 Christmas colored copies: 150 transparent red & 150 opaque white.1.

Imagene Peise - Atlas Eets ChristmasATLAST EETS CHRISTMAS was previously released in a very limited physical quantity on CD only under the pseudonym Imagene Peise (with a sticker that read "Love Is The Answer - Merry Christmas From The Flaming Lips 2007"). The pseudonym Imagene Peise is a John Lennon-esque spelling of "Imagine Peace," ala Lennonís wonsaponatime, and likewise the album title sounds-out "At last, it's Christmas." The alias credits are similarly punning: Imagene Peise - Piano Ominog Bangh - Laughing/Crying Glider Synthesizer Shineyu Bhupal - Drones, Sitar, and Baritone Tambura.
From the Flaming Lips' presumably vast vault of curiosities comes Atlas Eets Christmas, a psych-jazz piano album that originally appeared in a very limited run under the pseudonym Imagene Peise during the 2007 holiday season. Billed as a lost album by a mysterious young Iraqi piano prodigy name Peise who committed suicide in 1978, the album plays like the soundtrack to some sort of unearthed educational filmstrip where science meets Santa.
The same could be said about much of the Lips' more experimental output, which does include other Yuletide offerings, most notably the soundtrack to their 2008 film Christmas on Mars. Almost entirely instrumental and buried under the weight of a fabricated faux-vinyl crackle, Atlas frames their lovely piano arrangements of such classics as "Winter Wonderland," "Do You Hear What I Hear?," and "White Christmas" with buzzing sitars, spacy electronic noises, distant synths, and the band's hallmark Mellotron drones.
The result is a warmly intended yet moon-cold Christmas album that is still surprisingly pleasant. Although Wayne Coyne does make his presence known singing lead on the Vince Guaraldi-esque title cut (most likely through an old telephone from his home office on Mars), this largely seems to be the baby of multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd, whose graceful piano playing makes up the bulk of this unusual venture.1.
