Watch: The Mountain Goats

This time of the year is known as the season of giving, and The Mountain Goats front man John Darnielle is here to give you the creeps. Darnielle stopped by the A.V. Club's Holiday Undercover series to give us his rendition of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," and sonically, it was a gift. Darnielle keeps the song simple gives and his soft delivery suits the holiday classic. It's the visual aspect that gets a little weird. The performance was shot in a tight close-up, showing only Darnielle's face as he nearly unblinkingly and unemotionally plays the song. It gets a little uncomfortable. The uneasiness isn't aided by Darnielle's aside comment "In the grave, that's where we'll all actually be together, in the grave." Watch, or maybe just listen, to Darnielle's "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" below.
