“I’ll Be Home For Christmas”

    The Drums have mastered a faded, lunchbox pastiche, which naturally makes a song like “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” a perfect fit for them. It’s a slow, wistful take, full of melodrama and melancholy – singer Jonathon Pierce lingers on words like ‘mistletoe,’ seemingly savoring the moment. The session comes to us from Geoff Lloyd’s slot on the U.K.’s Absolute Radio, and it also features an extended interview with the band. The actual song starts at 12:30, if you aren’t interested in hearing the band talk through miscellanea. You can listen to the whole show here, or listen to an edit of the song below. [AHiaS]
