Indie Kids Get Early Christmas Presents… again

About this time last year, I wrapped up a selection of indie Christmas tunes for all you lovely people (somehow the link’s still active!), and since music is very dear to my heart, I thought I’d grab a load of new ones and share another festive package to put on in the background while you’re decking the halls and putting up the tree. 🙂 This one starts off with the new Coldplay Christmas record, Christmas Lights, which is just lovely (and another total anthem), with a few fun alternative holiday records thrown in – and it all fits on a standard blank CD. Just click the image to download. Enjoy! 🙂

  1. Awesome! We’re putting our tree up this weekend (I know, I’m late to the party…), this will be the perfect accomaniment. Thank you!

  2. I love being introduced to new music, LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Thanks so much, you lovely chickadee.
    Yay, this is just the music therapy I needed. 😉
    P.S. I appreciate your post script, too. I’m all about supporting the musicians, and will do so.

  3. And on a note that has nothing to do with the awesome playlist (I am LOVING the Coldplay song), I thought of this website when I was reading about your wedding. My little hidden geek heart loves it. So many GREAT GREAT GREAT things there!!

  4. So how has the first week of marriage been? Your love been spending every single minute sneaking you kisses and love messages? Give us an update on the first week of life together! Even if it’s just through a reply to the comments.

    1. It’s been great to just be able to relax and NOT have a hundred ribbons to tie onto things 🙂 Sadly we had to go straight back to work after the wedding, but the first married weekend has been just lovely, thanks 🙂

  5. Hi- just found your site and am loving your “26 before 26” page/post. I’m having a birthday in a few weeks and am thinking it just might be a great opportunity to do something like this!

    We could all use a bit more accountability, right?


  6. The Tom Jones and Catatonia one is just Cerys Matthews 🙂 One of my favourites – it’s on my phone atm the moment and I keep setting it as my alarm – when it gets closer to Christmas I might set it as my ring tone lol.

    You might also like Uncle Rod’s Christmas by Becky Higg. (iTunes I think has it).
