Over at Sufjan Stevens’ label Asthmatic Kitty, they’ve got
some Christmas goodies for you – just click on the link to go to the website
and highlight some of the “presents” boxes and you’ll be able to:

Now that’s some good ol’ fashioned fun –
and in the true Christmas spirit of givin’.

 

Meanwhile, word arrives (via Pitchfork)
that Stevens has recorded yet another edition of holiday music; recall that his
first five volumes were boxed by his label as Songs For Christmas (still available, incidentally). The latest,
Volume 8, is called Astral Inter Planet Space Captain Christmas
Infinity Voyage
, although note that at the moment it appears to be a private pressing
deal for family and friends only.

1 Angels We Have Heard on High
2 Do You See What I See?
3 It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
4 Christmas in the Room
5 Good King Wenceslas
