This week’s Mixcast is my attempt at a contemporary, indie X-Mas sing-along. The songs on this mix are from all of your favorite indie rock bands, some doing covers, others doing original pieces. It starts out fast and ends slow and smooth. I figure that a lot of you are going to be traveling this weekend and into the next week, so I wanted you to have something to pass the time and get you into the holiday spirit.
I hope you enjoy the mix and hopefully there are some songs on here that are new to you. I think it definitely turned out pretty well and maybe you’ll find some new favorites.

O Little Town of Bethlehem by Belle & Sebastian
