Indie Bands Play Indie Christmas Songs for Your Indie Holiday Party

I am a firm believer that you should not listen to Christmas music before December, let alone before Thanksgiving. Before that point is a little excessive (Almost like the ABC Family countdown to the 25 days of Christmas. Why there is a count down to a count down? Capitalism, but it is still excessive.). But not to fear we have made it into December so we can listen to it!

Here are 26 songs for indie holiday party.

1) She & Him – “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”
