Tis the Season for Los Straitjackets

Every December I pull out one of my very favorite Christmas albums, Tis the Season for Los Straitjackets.

Los Straitjackets, those guys who wear the Mexican wrestling masks and play killer surf guitar, made the perfect seasonal album earlier this decade: 13 short instrumentals in 32 minutes.

The first video below is from a recent show in New York. El Vez, the Mexican Elvis impersonator, lends his vocals.
