It's that time of the year again. Time to celebrate family, gift-giving, and above all else, indie music! Here are some indie tunes to get you through the hectic holiday week.

Deer Tick - Father Christmas

Indie alt-country band Deer Tick made this Conan web exclusive earlier this month. The song is a poppy punk rock cover of The Kinks' 1977 track "Father Christmas." It's a funny song about a department store Santa. Deer Tick takes the hilariousness to a new level with their ugly Christmas sweaters.

Sun Hotel - B.Y.O. Cheer

Here's a psychedelic hipster garbage kind of tune. With its southern influence and cool lyrics like "I wanna kiss you on your mind," it's not your typical holiday song. Still a great listen, nonetheless.

The Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping

Now here *is* your typical holiday song. Allmusic has described "Christmas Wrapping" as "one of the best holiday pop tunes ever recorded." I beg to agree. This 80s new wave song is the quintessential holiday classic.

Fun - Sleigh Ride

"Sleigh Ride" is another holiday classic. But Fun's upbeat electro cover offers a fresh, updated take on old timey holiday cheer.

Starf*ker - Happy F*cking Holidays

Let's end things off with a cheeky song. Because, let's be honest here. After putting up with family and in-laws, you may feel like dropping a couple f-bombs. Instead, plug in your earbuds and drop this song.
