More Alternative-Indie Rock XMas Songs: Julian Casablancas, Dandy Warhols, St. Etienne & Asobi Seksu

Adding to our extensive playlist mix collection of Christmas and holiday songs, we have a bunch of never-before-published (on this site) Xmas songs to share with you in the next week, including an exhaustive collection of great songs paired with a famous Christmas story.

Let’s get started with a a fresh cover from The Dandy Warhols that the band sent us a couple of days ago, followed up by a new Xmas track from The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas’ debut solo LP, 11th Dimension. Also, check out other notable holiday-style songs from The Snowballs, St. Etienne, Richard Hawly, Asobi Seksu and more.

This is the first of a few such playlists that will be posted in the next week, including a special playlist based on a famous Christmas poem. You’re not gonna want to miss that one, so check back. Additionally, we’re going to do a “best of” holiday songs mix based entirely on which tracks all of you have listened to, and downloaded, the most from Thanksgiving Eve to Christmas Eve.
