We Found the Perfect Alt. Christmas Playlist

With our holiday fiestas coming up, we tend to gravitate toward the classics when it comes to soundtracks: Phil Spector (don't penalize Darlene Love just cuz her producer is a killer), Ella and Louis, Vince Guaraldi ... NSYNC. But this year, we're looking forward to mixing it up just a bit and thankfully, there's a Spotify playlist for that (what would life be without Spotify, honestly?). This one comes courtesy of Victoria Bergsman, aka the brains behind Taken by Trees (you may recognize her voice from Peter Bjorn and John's "Young Folks").

The artist actually just put out a dreamy Christmas single herself, "Holiday," which is included in this eclectic playlist: Think everything from R&B (Toni Braxton's "Holiday Celebrate") to the folksy (Joni Mitchell's "River") to more recent indie pop (Mr Little Jeans' "Dear Santa"). There's a li'l something for everyone. Enjoy!
