Block Party

Pitchfork has a piece about Bob Dylan recording a Christmas album (?!). Apparently he’s already recorded the following tracks: “Must Be Santa”, “Here Comes Santa Claus”, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”, and “O Little Town of Bethlehem.”
High Noon Saloon and A Truer Sound recently did a mixtape exchange on their sites. A Truer Sound made one called Smothered, Covered, and Peppered that features covers of classic country tunes by David Allan Coe, Johnny Cash and the Old 97s. In return, High Noon Saloon made a mix called Waffles the Shape of Texas, which features covers by Vetiver, Uncle Tupelo, Feist and more.
The Rising Storm has a nice entry on Goose Creek Symphony and features two tracks from their record Established 1970. Check out their version of “A Satisfied Mind”. It’s mighty fine.
Stark Online shares the news that Dr Dog is leaving Park The Van, signing with Anti- Records and recording their next record with mega record producer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Foo Fighters, Elliott Smith). Crazy.
The Music Slut announces that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is set to produce a pair of concerts featuring Simon & Garfunkel, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Friends, Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin and more.
