Not everyone likes Christmas music, but everyone should like Vulfpeck. So to pump up the holiday cheer, this year, we’re bringing the Vulf-version of “Santa Baby” to the dinner table for a healthy helping of funk. The quartet shared this song on Christmas Day in 2015 through Majestic Casual, but it will stay in rotation for years to come.A truly Vulfian take on the holiday classic, the band described the tune as: “woody goss playing rhodes by ur fireplace making casual conversation with ur mishpacha.” Woody Goss, being the secret weapon that he is, is the mastermind behind this little jingle and for that we thank him for the revelation that not all Christmas music is bad. In fact, we’d listen to this tune all day, any day.Enjoy:If you haven’t already, check out this interview with Woody about all things birdwatching, burritos, and space.

Obviously, we value him and the position to do that and we would like to sign him to an extension.“Do I condone holding out? No, I don’t condone (it). But I think he’s been pretty professional with his comments from what I’ve seen.”Gordon has one year remaining on his rookie contract, which will pay him about $5.6 million, according to Spotrac. Gordon, however, recently told ESPN he is staying ready to play by working out “rigorously” in California. “Just waiting on the call,” said Gordon, who is reportedly prepared to sit out the entire season if a resolution isn’t reached.
