When we posted the 10 Best Indie Christmas Songs we limited our list to yuletide jamz that actually exist. Animal New York took a different tack, imagining what holiday songs would sound like if they were covered by folks like Bon Iver, the xx, Wavves, Beach House, Das Racist, and others. (Adam Horne of Bear Ceuse is responsible for the impressions.) The faux collection is called Merry Indie X-Mas and it’s pretty amusing. Watch a satirical commercial for it and stream the tunes below.
Hope Volume 2 includes Dirty Projectors’ “Little Drummer Boy.”
