Yes, free Christmas music.
I love Christmas music of almost any kind. And, of course, I love things that are free. So, combining the two is my way of spreading some holiday cheer!
For many years, the music blog Stereogum shared a special Christmas mix of free, downloadable MP3s from Indie artists, some you may know and some you may not. It was always a fun mix and almost always introduced me to new music while also giving me different Christmas music to listen to every year. Sadly, as far as I can tell, the last year they did that was 2011. But, I’m still going to share that last year’s list here: 20 “New” Indie Rock Christmas MP3s for 2011
This year, though, they did share Mad Decent’s “A Very Decent Christmas Mixtape“, which you can stream. Try it out! It’s fun, too, though not quite as easy to listen to in the car as burning a CD of MP3s.
So, there it is. Short and sweet, just in time for the last of the holidays!
(Also, today is my birthday. I almost forgot!)
