One Weekly Gun – One Xmas Song Every Week

Free Asthmatic Kitty Christmas Sampler

This is the season to discover some excellent Indie/Alt/Hipster Christmas music.  Onward, Voyageur is one group I have posted on before and they offer the ‘Christmas Song’.  Included are two by Sufjan Stevens in honor of his multi-set box edition of Christmas favorites and his unique compositions.  The price and what is included makes it the best value around.  You can make a very long playlist from just your favorites from this set.  I recommend the box set over the mp3 download as you will get tons of extras in typical Sufjanic generosity.  Click on the Free link above and search out the box set for purchase on the site.  Fauxbois is a new find from Boise and they are basically excellent (stay tuned for more on this group).  William Ryan Fritch is another artist of reckoning and his moody alt Christmas release can also be searched for and is free on the Asthmatic Kitty site.   Included below is one of my favorite weavers of beauty: Loreena McKennitt.
