Have a Very Merry Chrismukkah
(Warner)
On the simulatenously released OC Mix 2, you can find Nada Surf covering lame ’80s tune “If You Leave,” most famous for underscoring Molly Ringwald’s angst in Pretty in Pink. A similar tactic is employed on this collection—a clever, ultimately half-baked idea—by Jimmy Eat World, who present a tinny take on Wham’s “Last Christmas.” Appearances by Ron Sexsmith, The Long Winters and Low don’t make up for the album’s low total of nine songs. Kind of a rip-off. Absolutely a cash grab.
