Kilt Radio: 006 “KiltChristmas”

From the likes of Mariah Carey, Joni Mitchell, and Phoebe Bridgers, these songs are perfect for leaning against a freezing window.

Visit Our Playlist on Spotify and Apple Music.


The holiday season is upon us, and all we want to do is stay in this season forever, so we created this playlist to let that feeling linger and eventually melt like week-old street snow. From holiday classics from Fleet Foxes and Brenda Lee to indie-alternative deep cuts like ‘Winter Wonderland’ by Cocteau Twins, this playlist will leave you cozy and nostalgic for a time you’ll forget by January. And no holiday playlist is complete without Mariah Carey’s iconic “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” our favorite Christmas track. From the likes of Mariah Carey, Joni Mitchell, and Phoebe Bridgers, these songs are perfect for leaning against a freezing window.


Last Christmas” by Lucy Dacus

Lucy Dacus is an artist that has shot into popularity over the past year with the recent fame of her group project Boygenius. Her most recent album Home Video is easily most popular, but with pop culture focus on her band and newer albums, her old albums often go forgotten. Lucy Dacus’s version of “Last Christmas” featured on her one of her first EPs is one of the best versions yet, in my personal opinion. The spoken, radio-sounding vocals of the choruses are unique, and the indie-rock style brings a modern light to a classic.

“If We Make It Through December” by Phoebe Bridgers

An indie Christmas playlist cannot be complete without mention of one of Phoebe Bridgers’s iconic Christmas songs. “If We Make It Through December” is arguably one of the most popular of her Christmas songs and for good reason. It is an incredibly melancholy and poignant take on an originally folky tune, making this a perfect song for the sadder times of the holidays.


“When I Get Home for Christmas” by Snow Patrol

“When I Get Home for Christmas” by Snow Patrol is an alternative rock song that feels surprisingly jolly. Sleigh bells alongside a dreamy-distorted guitar make the song feel all the more liminal, like returning to a home that feels unrecognizable. Reuniting with our loved ones is one of our favorite parts of the Christmas season and this song makes that feeling all too real.
