10. MUSIC: “Gaudete” by Erasure
There comes a time for every group, band, or singer with longevity to release a holiday record. It’s now Erasure’s time. The first single to Snow Globe, out November 11, is “Gaudete,” a cover of a Christmas carol from Renaissance days. Andy Bell and Vince Clarke include their usual synthesizer touches in the song, which has a creepy, Claymation-ish video. —Neal Broverman
