"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," Rupert Angeleyes
It's not anywhere near the holidays, but the warm spring weather won't get in your way of enjoying Rupert Angeleyes' sweet, warped take on "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus." Angeleyes frontman Kyle Sobczak stopped by Radio K to perform his tape machine-assisted rendition of the holiday classic, along with lo-fi covers of the Beach Boys' "Little Saint Nick," "Santa Baby," and a tongue-in-cheek take on Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas." Aside from coloring the Christmas classics with his signature psych-pop warbles, Sobczak added in a bizarre "conversation" with a deep-voiced Santa himself, in which ol' St. Nick confesses that he has a crush on Sobczak and that Rupert's 2014 release, Young Sunset, is his favorite album. It's a Christmas miracle!
