Olden times and ancient rhymes

Chris Mastheim in the flesh
A few days ago, No Kids/Gigi leader Nick Krgovich dropped a free holiday EP under the pseudonym Chris Mastheim. (Don’t get the pun? Say it out loud.) The EP is called Chris Mastheim Is Here. Go to Exclaim! for my brief article about the release.

Even though I’m a day late for Christmas, I’m still going to post his cover of “Christmastime Is Here” (the classic from A Charlie Brown Christmas). The synth backing is based on the Twin Peaks theme song, which is easily my favourite TV show theme of all time. A little bird tells me that Gus Franklin from Architecture in Helsinki helped out with the Twin Peaks part, but that’s unconfirmed.
