Damien Jurado "Christmas Time Is Here" (Vince Guaraldi cover)
Published Dec 07, 2011Just last week, lo-fi folksters Woods offered up a warped and warbly version of Vince Guaraldi's A Charlie Brown Christmas cut "Christmas Time Is Here," but if you wanted another take on the yuletide standard, Damien Jurado has just delivered a cover of his own.
Jurado plays it a bit more traditional, filling out his falsetto on the track with jazzy piano, brushed drums and the sounds of the Aki Kurose Middle School Academy Glee Club choir. You can check out the slow-and-steady cover, which also features a brassy trumpet solo you can easily appreciate over a cup of nutmeg-topped cocoa, over here, courtesy of HitFix.
The seasonal selection should tide fans of the Seattle-based singer-songwriter over until he releases his next album, Maraqopa, on February 21, through Secretly Canadian.
