So, for some reason I’ve never been a huge fan of Christmas music. It’s not that I don’t like the season or enjoy all the festivities, I just get tired of hearing the same 20 songs sung by the same 6 people that malls start playing during the frenzy of overcrowded shopping and unrestrained materialism. Maybe the stress of the crowds ruined those songs for me, maybe it’s the fact that no one has written a new Christmas song in approximately 67 years, or maybe listening to any song every year at the same time would get old.
Whatever the reason, I’ve tried to find my own way to enjoy music during the Christmas season, and since I’m not always near a record player where I can drop the needle on Vince Guaraldi’s Charlie Brown Christmas record, I’ve assembled a Spotify playlist of some of my favorite indie artists doing their own versions of traditional Christmas songs, as well as some new songs that are even better.
I didn’t think it was worth designing artwork or setting up a whole download link, but if you click the link below, you can subscribe to the playlist on my spotify account and get in the festive spirit in a tasteful way.

I hope you all enjoy this little playlist. We’ll return to our regularly scheduled playlist-making soon.
