I've spent the last several holiday seasons attempting to make (or at least thinking about making) a great pop mix of winter/Christmas/holiday songs and I always drop the ball. This year, Indiecater did it for me!
Featuring something for almost everyone on your christmas list, this 17 track mix is perfect for soundtracking your holiday parties! And, you can stream it all first!
1) The Cloud Room - Melody, Like Snow (Dancing Around The Christmas Tree In New York)
2) Nina Hynes - Twinkle (Fixing Fairy Lights In Berlin)
3) Kill Krinkle Club - Songs Of Noel (Playing Twister In Dublin)
4) Bill Baird - Christmas In Jail (Throwing Snowballs In Austin)
5) Idaho - Santa Claus Is Weird (Leaving Cookies Out In Los Angeles)
6) Venice Is Sinking - The Grey Line (Putting Up Decorations In Athens, Georgia)
7) Normandy - Merry Christmas, Blogosphere! (Ice Skating In New York)
8) The Very Most - This Year, Christmas Came November 4th (Playing Santa In Boise)
9) Remington Super 60 - Here Comes Christmas (Wrapping Presents In Fredrikstad)
10) Jape & David Kitt - I Will Cry This Christmas (Sobering Granny Up In Dublin)
11) The Specimen - Wish It Would Snow (Listening To The Bells In Brooklyn)
12) Nonstop Everything - There Is No Santa, Little Boy (Pulling Crackers In Pittsburgh)
13) My Teenage Stride - Is It Christmastime Already? (Hanging Mistletoe In Brooklyn)
14) Dora Flood - Coastal Winter (Carving Turkey In San Francisco)
15) Loxsly - Santa Got The Spins (Feeling Stuffed In Austin)

My Teenage Stride's track "Is It Christmas Time Already?" sounds grand and fun and perfect for running around creating photocopier mischief at your office holiday party. Boise's The Very Most also have a track on here called "This Year, Christmas Came November 4th" about how Obama winning was the best Christmas we could have gotten. This mix is definitely worth British shipping charges!
