MP3 of the Week: The Hush Now "On Holiday"

Everyone’s pairing Yuletide joy with indie-rock riffage this holiday season, from the Target compilation featuring jingle-ball lovers Best Coast and Wavves to the Organ Beats’ charity single to benefit the MSPCA, “This Christmas.” But local indie-pop dudes the HUSH NOW may be tops when it comes to seasonally appropriate jingles. Just a few months after snazzing up Halloween with a tale of Mephistopheles’s rocker-chasing exploits, they’re back with the festive “On Holiday.” At the outset, it’s a loungy, drunk-on-Baileys romp through airport security on Christmas Eve, except that gropy TSA employees have been replaced by a gracious and accommodating Pizzicato 5. Then the eponymous chorus soars high like an ambitious reindeer through jazzy rock skylines, with bells, horns, and a stocking stuffed with feel-good rock merriment in tow. Decorate the tree, hang the mistletoe (don’t be creepy about it), and grab the MP3 down below.
