“so, thereâ€™s been this depressing christmas song iâ€™d been singing to myself for the past 8 years, and every year i wouldnâ€™t remember that i wanted to make it until december, which is just too late to actually record and release a christmas song… but this year, al doyle had a short break between hot chip tours where he could be in nyc, and pat and nancy were home, and tyler agreed to fly out from berlin for a few days, so we all recorded this together, reserved a pressing plant slot, and our friend bob weston was available to master it quicklyâ€”so that means, less than 2 weeks after we recorded it, there is actually a christmas 7″, which feels like something that could only have happened a very, very long time ago.
anyway, for the holidays we give you the previous, very long run-on sentence, and this song: â€œchristmas will break your heartâ€, which is another one of those songs which had about 75 lines of lyrics, though weâ€™ve knocked down to 8 to keep the suicide rate in check.
NYC disco dons Holy Ghost! goes to a BMX riddled homecoming dance in this video for their 80Â´s throwback sounding single “I Wanted To Tell Her” that also features DFA label friends Nancy Whang (of LCD Soundsystem) and Juan Maclean.
