A very indie Christmas playlist

Over the past week I’ve been asking Canadian indie artists if they have Christmas songs they’d like to share with the world. I’ve collected some beautiful gems so far. Take a listen below.

If you like these songs, make sure to check out some other cool compilations available: A Peanuts Christmas: The 2009 Zunior Holiday Album from zunior.com, An Indiecater Christmas 2009 from indiecater.com, and The Eggnogg Experience from the Mental Beast, which is available for free download on December 17.

Without further ado …

The Dudes, “Don’t Diss Christmas”

The Heavy Blinkers, “Silence Your Drum”

The Mountains & The Trees, “All Together Now (For The Holidays)”

Library Voices, “The Book Of Love”

Chris Page, “Stocking Stuffer”

Hannah Georgas, “Christmas Touch”

Jody Glenham, “O Holy Night”

Fucked Up (Feat. Andrew W.K., Bob Mould, David Cross, Ezra Koenig, GZA, Kevin Drew, Kyp Malone, Tegan & Sara, and Yo La Tengo), “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” (You can download it from iTunes HERE).

Ohbijou, “Last Christmas.”
