Were you were waiting for the Kitty Pryde collab that was missing from Sufjan’s five-disc Christmas box set? Well, here it is: Kitty shows up alongside Busdriver, Nicky Da B, even the now-defunct Das Racist on Chopped and Scrooged, a Christmas-themed indie-rap mixtape par excellence, and that’s the last time you’ll ever see those words together. With tracks produced by Son Volt, Fol Chen, and Deerhoof’s John Dietrich, the mixtape might not be the right soundtrack for Christmas dinner, but it’s definitely worth a few good listens in headphones. Download it here.
