Kitsune Noir Mixcast / No.019

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.

Here’s this week’s tracklist:
Winter Wonderland by Phantom Planet
O Little Town of Bethlehem by Belle & Sebastian
Everything Is Gonna Be Cool This Christmas by Eels
Get Behind Me, Santa! by Sufjan Stevens
Whack Bat Majorette by Alexandre Desplat
It’s Christmas Time by Yo La Tengo
Blue Christmas by Bright Eyes
Cold White Christmas by Casiotone for the Painfully Alone
Wild Animals Approaching The Lovely Country Funeral by Jason Lytle
I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day by Pedro The Lion
O Holy Night by My Morning Jacket
Lo, How A Rose E’er Blooming by Feist

    Sufjan’s Christmas collection is really good. I listen to parts of it all year round. It comes in a multi disk set with a comic, songbook and stickers. I’m glad you included him in the list. If you ever consider getting it don’t download the mp3. You’ll miss on the great packaging and goodies.

    I’m a long-time listener of your mixcasts so I just wanted to day thanks for introducing me to so much great music every week. I really love Christmas music so it’s great to see a lot of my favourites on this one!

    One addition I would really recommend if you haven’t heard it is “Yeah, I know, it’s christmastime” by Andrew Dost. It’s all about the lyrics in the first verse.. thought you might enjoy it as well!

    Happy Holidays!

    Bobby – Thanks for all the great music and art all year. I love the photo of all the Santas. Where on earth did you find that?

    Hope you have a great holiday!

    Thank you from London – have a very merry Christmas and New Year (:

    The B&S commentary at the start of that track just made me smile – esp that accent!
