Monday morning music: Indie Christmas

It has become a tradition for me to make a mix CD for my Dad on holidays or his birthday.  He introduced me to a lot of great music as I was growing up and I’m happy that I’ve been able to give back in the recent past. Last year, I made him an Indie Christmas cd. I fell in love with it, so I thought I’d share it with you.

Note: I couldn’t find all of the songs on, so here are a few that made my Dad’s CD but aren’t on the playlist:

  • The Winter Song ~ Eisley
  • Donde Esta Santa Claus? ~ Guster
  • Sleigh Ride ~ KT Tunstall
  • Up on the Housetop ~ Pomplamoose
  • My Dear Acquaintance {A Happy New Year} ~ Regina Spektor
  • The Christmas Waltz ~ She & Him
  • Star Star ~ The Swell Season
  • Sunshine for Christmas ~ That Band From Holland & Left Handed Orchestra
  • The First Snowflake ~ The Boy Least Likely To
  • Joy to the World ~ Timbre

What do you listen to, to get yourself in the holiday spirit?
