Holiday Undercover

Dresden Dolls cover Neutral Milk Hotel

The Dresden Dolls tackle the "Two Headed Boy."

About This Episode

It's a treat to see the fantastically theatrical Dresden Dolls stripped down to their component parts, and we were delighted that Amanda Palmer and Brian Viglione made Holiday Undercover part of their brief reunion tour. They chose a song that you might recognize from the original Undercover series: Neutral Milk Hotel's "Two Headed Boy," which was performed earlier this year by Swell Season. The Dresden Dolls' version, as you'll see, is massively different, with Palmer bringing an entirely new energy to this great, great song. What does it have to do with the holidays, you ask? The answer: "The world that you need is wrapped in gold silver sleeves / Left beneath Christmas trees in the snow." Enjoy.
