I work at home and with the exception of Jersey barking for attention, it can get a little quiet around here. It’s rare for a day to pass where I don’t tap into my iTunes playlist for a little juice.
With Christmas right around the corner, I’ve been pumping out holiday tunes. There’s nothing I love more than a traditional holiday jingle, but when I am working I love the soft tone of indie rock. Today I am sharing a list of 25 totally chill indie Christmas songs that I’ve been playing in the background.
You can check out the songs one by one below, or just hop over to my Indie Christmas Song playlist on YouTube!
