With the holidays upon us, many of us at The Current are looking forward to seeing our families, especially our brothers and sisters, which had us thinking about all the great sibling bands. We are family.
The host of Transmission, Jake Rudh, provides a playlist of some of his favorite holiday jams as nice alternatives to the seasonal norm. Just don't ask him for any help explaining what a Cocteau Twin is to Grandma.
