She & Him

A Very She & Him Christmas

(Merge)

Sounds Like: Pretty much all the goofy, old-school rock ’n’ roll Christmas songs by the dopey duo in their (obnoxiously) charming way, done to surprisingly great effect.

Free Association: Her weird bubble voice was built for retro-sounding Christmas times.

For Fans Of: Beach Boys in December, Monsters of Folk, Home Alone, New Girl.

Glee The Music

The Christmas Album, Volume 2

(Columbia)

Sounds Like: Those little twits who can barely sing crap out another best-selling slew of well-produced, polished turds of seasonal joy to inject the holiday with gayness.

Free Association: Get your Repub uncle one of these for Xmas. He’ll be weirded out.

For Fans Of: Grease x Hairspray, X-Factor/The Voice/The Singoff, no-talent success.

Michael Buble

Christmas

(Reprise)

Sounds Like: This guy talk-sings his way through the standards like he’s working a Vegas showroom winking, snapping and finger-shooting at soccer moms and grandmas.

Free Association: Any woman in Ugg boots would be happy to get this in her yoga pants stocking.

For Fans Of: Wayne Newton, Shania Twain/Puppini Sisters, Dr. Seuss narrators.

Justin Bieber
