An Indie Winter Wonderland

by Stephanie Benson  |  November 22, 2011

Holiday music is not just reserved for the fair crooner. In fact, many an indie artist has been struck with yuletide fever -- or has at least shivered enough through a December day to be inspired to sing about hard winters and white snow. So this isn't strictly hall-decking, bell-jingling music, but rather an array of tunes that represent both the jolly and the melancholy of the holiday season, from covers by Sufjan Stevens, She & Him and Rogue Wave to sweet originals by Snow Patrol and The Raveonettes to, well, stranger Christmas ditties from Beck, The Flaming Lips and Julian Casablancas. There's also lots of talk about winter and snow -- and if you're dying to learn 50 ways to describe the white stuff, Kate Bush will educate you.
