As we (new) wave so long to the year, the holiday season is upon us! We've complied a playlist of our favorite indie holiday songs that jingle and jangle us here at the Baby Teith factory (in Santa's Secret Phoenix Desert outpost)! We wish you all a super fun season and a happy new year!
Here's our TOP 5 INDIE HOLIDAY HITS
5. "Little Drummer Boy" - The Dandy Warhols
March your way to the presents laid down by the wise men with this grungy shoegaze cover of the classic holiday ballad. Some great " BOM BOM BOM BOMS" in there LOL!!
4. "Little Saint Nick" - Best Coast
Polish your jingle bells and get ready for a visit to Santa!! Brought to you in surf and sand swept fashion by the ever fantastic Best Coast.
3. "Ho Ho Ho Santa Let's Go!"
"I know I've been naught but I want to be nice," - has a truer sentence ever been sassily sung? We're a little biased about this Ramones inspired holiday original rocker, since we just released it on BABY TEITH RECORDS!!
2. "The Christmas Song" - The Raveonettes
Feeling a bit moody and cozy? Put on a big Robert Smith sweater, stare at the fire and sway to the Danish-lo-fi-garage rock-shoegazing-post punk revivalists, The Raveonettes!
1. "Wonderful Christmastime" - The Shins
The spirits are up for all the witches, simply having a "Wonderful Christmastime." The Shins add some punchy indie flare to Paul McCartney's classic holiday romp. So, raise a glass, we're all here together!! CHEERS, WITCHES!!!
