New music! Sometimes old music. Music that we love!
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
So you know the Chipmunks and their super-squeaky voices? The way they did that was, they had regular dudes sing at a normal pitch, but really slowly. When they pitch the whole thing up (think fast-forward), you get the iconic Chipmunk sound. Got it? OK, so they had to record the backing track normally, then slow it down to let the regular dudes sing their parts slow. So this guy has been slowing the backing tracks down again, which results in, well… this. Super-laconic, slightly creepy, and very much not like the chipmunks. It’s called sludgepop. Sometimes it has very interesting results, like when they cover Michael Jackson (check out more tracks here). It’s a strange kind of cultural anthropology or something. So… Merry Christmas!

So that’s where that comes from!
