A band you maybe haven't heard of covering a Christmas song you've surely never heard of? Take it on faith, people, and give a listen to Little Red's "Christmas Lights." The Australian group--who are pretty big down undah--was in the midst of an American tour supporting its excellent Midnight Remember when we asked if they'd go all holiday for us. Little Red's choice was one we hadn't heard before: "Christmas Lights" is apparently by an Australian singer named Neil Gray. Perhaps it'll become a new classic in this version, which we hope you enjoy.
