Little Scream covered The Velvet Underground @ A.V. Club

Little Scream stopped by the A.V. Club to participate in their Holiday Undercover series. Opting to play The Velvet Underground‘s “Jesus” isn’t exactly festive, but it does make a bit of sense.

Jesus is the reason for the season, right? So it’s really not that strange that Little Scream–whose members you might recognize from their Undercover assist with Sharon Van Etten–chose to celebrate Holiday Undercover with “Jesus.” The song, an entreaty by Lou Reed from The Velvet Underground’s self-titled 1969 album, doesn’t exactly celebrate the holiday, but it does look to religion for answers. (And yes, Reed was born into a Jewish family, just like Jesus.) In any case, we think you’ll find Little Scream’s version of the song haunting and beautiful, especially given that it’s bolstered by a singing saw.
