the vocals do sound kind of fake, which could be a stylistic choice, but it doesn't really work with brick.  I think it's a little too loud/hard on the vocals throughout most of it too.  You (?) sound more angry than sorrowful.

As to brick being a Christmas song, this came up watching the Sing Off last night, as I said that Ben doesn't really have any well known Christmassy songs.  My friend Kate thinks for a couple of seconds and says "well, there's Brick."  We didn't stop laughing for a while.
"Wait, he said 'good things come to those who wait,' but you didn't wait too long" "Keep listening" Kristen, on me and "Bruised"

s I said that Ben doesn't really have any well known Christmassy songs. 

I can think of at least two.  Whether they would have fit on this EP?

Good effort guys. It's always good to hear someone else's take on a Folds classic. But, you just can't beat a classic.
As has already been stated- the mix, particularly the vocals will probably put a lot of people off. It really gives it that "demo" sound. But it's obvious you enjoy the song, and i although we can all criticise, i doubt many of us could do that song justice (of course i only speak for myself here).

I laughed at the "Have yourself a merry little Chris-mice" when the next track started too. not my favourite style of vocals i'll say that much.
