The good folks at WOXY.com have launched their "Holiday Mixer", a channel of streaming holiday tracks heavy on indie artists and sounds...
From their website:
From now through Christmas, we're pleased to offer up the WOXY HOLIDAY MIXER! This unique 24/7 collection of seasonal tunes is filled with vintage renditions of your holiday favorites by modern rockers from around the globe. We have a little bit of something for everyone with new music this year from the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Aimee Mann, Over The Rhine, and The Teenage Prayers. If you stick around long enough, you'll probably hear some irreverent selections from "A John Waters Christmas" and Spinal Tap but we've balanced them out with some classic tracks from Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and James Brown among others. To round things out a little more, we've also included some tunes about winter, snow falling, and the month of December because we know you can only hear "Jingle Bells" so many times...
As a example, here are the last 10 tracks the channel has played as of this morning:
Judah Johnson - Cold Hands, Warm Heart
The Raveonettes - The Christmas Song
Elvis Presley - Santa Bring My Baby Back
Kay Starr - The Man With The Bag (remix)
The Partridge Family - Rockin' Around The...
