Thanksgiving is over, and the countdown to Christmas has begun. The season begins earlier and earlier every year, with stores and stations blasting holiday tunes way before we're ready. However, it's OFFICIALLY time to get into the swing of things. And I for one am welcoming it with open arms.
Not ready, Scrooge? Does the sound of another snow-themed song make your stomach turn? News Flash: you don't have to hate Christmas music. Chances are, even your favorite indie songbird has one, two or ten songs dedicated to the holiday season. Embrace them.
With that, peep our sidebar for a Christmas playlist of songs that likely won't make it to 94.7 this season. And a supplementary video featuring Hipster Heroes Yo La Tengo, GZA, Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, Bob Mould, Tegan & Sara, Andrew W.K., TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone, David Cross, and Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew.
