Music on TV This Week: Beach House

With only a few more days until Christmas, it's both time for holiday music and to reflect upon the past 12 months with year-end lists. One album that keeps popping up at or near the top of every list this year is the latest from Beach House, Teen Dream, released all the way back in January. Tonight, the duo from Baltimore will be all too happy to remind us why that album is still stuck in our heads, with a performance on Conan.While the band continues to tour in support of Teen Dream, they also just offered up a new song for the holiday season, "I Do Not Care for the Winter Sun," free to download from their site. It's a song that's quite appropriate for the shortest of days and darkest of nights* but expect the band to play something instead from the album (likely, the great "Norway").*Tonight, in fact, is a lunar eclipse occurring on the longest night of the year, the first time this has happened in nearly 500 years.Finally, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon gets into the holiday spirit with special holiday-themed musical performances from Jose Feliciano (Thursday) and Aaron Neville (Friday). Feliciano's "Feliz Navidad," which has become a classic in the holiday season, is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and the Roots will join in for a no doubt stirring rendition (queue the horns!). The Puerto Rican born Feliciano recently found his way to Daryl Hall's online show Live From Daryl's House to perform the classic:Picks for the week
