All I Want For Christmas is No More Fucking Hipsters

The first new recording in 30 years by The Washington Squares is a cover of...The Chipmunks.

You know, back in the day. I found those guys is-it-ironic-or-is-it-sincere take on Peter, Paul and Mary as too fucking cute by half. This new song hasn't changed my mind.

Too fucking cute by half is right. This time I'm not sorry the player on my screen is an empty gray rectangle.

But maybe they're ripe for hipster BRKLYN. They could open for the Bon Iver, or Iron and Wine.

FWIW: The track isn't new, just previously unreleased. According to Wikipedia: "Three more albums of previously unreleased recordings are in the planning with the first due Thanksgiving 2016. The group broke up after [Bruce Jay] Paskow's death in 1994."

I finally got the main guy whose name I forget to admit that it was all a joke. I said, "Not to me, it isn't."

buzz baby jesus? I guess you're a serious person. Wow. I knew I should have come to buzz baby jesus or pete when it came to important life experiences. So brainiaks - what the f**k is wrong with covering the Chipmunks, or should everyone be exactly like Peter Paul and Mary?
