Today on Soundcheck: Christmas music from Holidelic, a funk holiday spectacular that owes more to Parliament than Perry Como. Composer and E Street Band member Everett Bradley brings his platform boots, light-laden Afro wig and the rest of his ensemble to our studio to perform live.

Then, Scott Walker, the musician who found early success as part of the Walker Brothers in the mid 60s -- talks about his dark, challenging, but rewarding new record, Bish Bosch

And the young blues singer Valerie June sings new music from her upcoming debut studio album.

Scott Walker: Abstract And Unsettling On 'Bisch Bosch'

Scott Walker found early success as part of the Walker Brothers, who were one of the biggest pop acts in the U.K. in the mid-1960's. But over the years, Walker has moved further and further from the harsh glare of the pop spotlight and into someplace far darker. The musician joins us in the studio to discuss his first new album in many years, Bish Bosch.
