Craig Finn and Esmé Patterson Bring New Warmth to Low’s ‘Just Like Christmas’

Last month, the AV Club wrapped the latest season of their Undercover series, but they’re back for the holidays with four new episodes. This week, the Hold Steady’s Craig Finn and Denver-based singer/songwriter Esmé Patterson cover Low’s soft-as-snow “Just Like Christmas” from 1999. Flanked by sleigh bells and spacious synths, their mellow vocals blend beautifully and bring a new warmth to the song — despite the CGI flakes.

Watch their performance and a Q&A below.
