Listen: More Alternative Holiday Tunes


Santa Stole My Lady Art I know, less than two weeks til Christmas, and you're willing and ready to join in the holiday spirit by listening to some holiday jams.  And I understand -- you are not a fan of this. Have no fear. I've wrangled up some more alternative songs of the festive nature to keep your ears company while you're decking the halls. 


Fitz & the Tantrums - "Santa Stole My Baby"

Fitz & crew keep it sassy with this holiday original, "Santa Stole My Baby."



My Morning Jacket - "When The Bells Start Ringing"


Have yourself a twangy indie Christmas with this little number. This song, which is included on My Morning Jacket's new iTunes Session EP of holiday songs, also features The Head & the Heart. You can snag this song for free here

 


Best Coast/Wavves - "Got Something for You"

This holiday duet from real-life indie rock lovebirds Beth Cosentino (Best Coast) and Nathan Williams (Wavves) is a cute, lo-fi jingle gem (released last year). 

 

The Dandy Warhols - "Little Drummer Boy"

Though it was originally released back in 1994, this is a mainstay in my annual holiday playlist. You can download it for free over here. And kudos to them, for crafting a cover of "Little Drummer Boy" that doesn't make me cringe!

   

Local Spotlight: Daniel & the Lion - "Ukulele Christmas"

Local musician and Project M alum Jimmie Linville fronts the folk duo Daniel & the Lion, who just released a collection of holiday songs. The album, aptly-titled The Christmas Album, features this original gem, "Ukulele Christmas," which you can scoop up for free here. Unsatisfied? You can pick up The Christmas Album here.

 


Happy Holidays!
