The Monkees recorded a new Christmas album
Hey, hey… the surviving Monkees — Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork — are putting out their first Christmas album next month. It’s called Christmas Party and it features songs they’ve recorded with other groovy musical artists, including the vintage vocals of late Monkee Davy Jones.
Christmas Party features new songs written by Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo (“What Would Santa Do”) and Andy Partridge of XTC (“Unwrap You At Christmas”). Novelist Michael Chabon and Schlesinger collaborated on “House of Broken Gingerbread,” while R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey of the Minus 5 wrote the title track and play on a cover of Big Star’s “Jesus Christ.” Nesmith didn’t write any songs for the album, but he does sing lead on “The Christmas Song” and “Snowfall.” Other tracks on the album include “Wonderful Christmastime,” “Angels We Have Heard on High” and “Merry Christmas, Baby.”
Christmas Party drops October 12th. Pre-order it at Rhino Records. (Don’t worry. If you still play the LDB game during the holiday season, don’t worry, there’s NOT a recording of Little Drummer Boy to be found on this album.)

It’s not a good machine or a precise machine, but it is still a machine that will wrap gifts (and sandwiches and ankles) in 10 seconds. But the best part of this video isn’t the present wrapping, it’s when inventor Joseph Herscher of Joseph’s Machines shows his many attempts at automating the Christmas-tree-decorating process.
