Default Your favorite indie rock Christmas albums/songs?

Hey guys, with the holidays right around the corner, I am looking for some good indie/alternative xmas albums/songs.

I have the Bright Eyes, Sufjan Stevens, and the Brushfire Records Christmas albums - all of which I really enjoy. I was wondering if any of you know of some other good ones I can check out. Thanks!

Also any good Christmas indie rock songs would be appreciated too...

Hands down, my favorite indie rock Christmas song is Death Cab For Cutie's: Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)...I listen to it all the time this time of year and kinda sorta wish they would make a Christmas album, but sadly, I just don't think it's in the cards for them. I think Death Cab's version of Little Drummer Boy would be AWESOME!

Ya Sufjan Steven's Christmas album is pretty good. I also really like Belle and Sebastian's live Christmas album.

Is there a Belle and Sebastian Christmas album? Or are you saying you would like for them to do one?

Also, I didn't know DCFC did a cover of that song. I will have to get it.

check out Aimee Mann's Christmas Album "One More Drifter in the Snow." Good stuff.

^That was awesome. I've liked Pomplamoose since I heard their cover of Single Ladies.
