We’re plowing through bandwidth here at Spin HQ, stockpiling tracks for the long, cold winter ahead. Thanks to Le Tigre (the clothier, not the band), we’ve got another addition to our “Tunes That Sleigh” playlist: a new, unreleased holiday track from recent Clap Your Hands Say Yeah tourmates Takka Takka called “The Stars and Subway Cars.” Something about this reminds us of that decidedly excellent winter tale, The Ice Storm: Picture Elijah Wood and Christina Ricci spinning this on the basement turntable as icy weather reigns outside and everything falls apart. Click the Takka Takka link at letigreusa.com for the download.
You can download yet another Takka Takka track, “We Feel Safer at Night,” here, and New Yorkers can catch the band this Saturday night at the Bowery Ballroom.
