SHARON JONES & THE DAP-KINGS are dreaming of a "White Christmas."

NEW RELEASES: Pitchfork will point you to Duster, Eddy Current Suppression Ring and the Uncut Gems soundtrack.

INDIE BASEMENT will point you toward John Myrtle, The Lodge 49 soundtrack, and The Sound of Sheffield.

CHROMATICS stream The Sound of Silence EP.

ROY LONEY, the original frontman of the influential power-pop band Flamin’ Groovies, has died at 73.

GERSHON KINGSLEY, the Moog pioneer who wrote "Popcorn" has died at 97.

THE NUMBER ONES looks at the moment when '50s crooner Johnny Mathis and '80s hitmaker Deniece Williams teamed up on the adult-contempo breakup duet "Too Much, Too Little, Too Late."

 

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Jumanji: The Next Level has top score with 60.1MM, unlikely to match the original, yet still remain a major player through the holidays.  Frozen II places with 19.2MM on a 46 percent drop, which is probably a notch worse than expected but enough to bust the billion-dollar mark worldwide.  Knives Out shows with 9.3MM on a leggy 35 percent drop; it could really max out if it can survive the Rise of Skywalker next weekend (and tbh, everything about Disney's marketing campaign says they're worrtied The Last Jedi really put everyone off).  Richard Jewell debuts in the fourth slot with 5MM, which is bad even against a perported 45MM budget; many will attribute this to politics, when it may just be that Clint Eastwood isn't in it and people are otherwise uninterested in the story.  Black Christmas rounds out the Top Five with 4.4M, which is also pretty bad considering that the last remake in 2006 opened with 16MM.

THE RISE OF SKYWALKER released a new clip featuring Kylo Ren hearing voices. Also, J.J. shared this clip at Fortnite.

ANNA KARINA, known for her prolific work in French New Wave films and collaborations with Serge Gainsbourg, has died at 79.

RIP TORN's cause of death was revealed as Alzheimer's, which is not a great way to go.
