They Might Be Giants

Holidayland! (Restless) Before you TMBG fans go nutting off to the rekkid store clutching your pennybags, take a minute to breathe and repeat to yourself, "This is an EP of previously released material!" Now relax. Actually, there's one new song among the five, a spunky take on the Sonics' "Santa Claus," and of the other four tracks, only Lincoln's "Santa's Beard" is all that likely to be in the hands of the non-fanatic.
