Under The Mistletoe


Sounds Like: The 17-year-old superstar’s second record (ever) is a Christmas album with guest spots from Usher, Mariah, Boyz II Men and Busta—this world is weird.

Free Association: Buy this to guarantee he vacations with Selena Gomez as he wishes.

For Fans Of: David Archuleta x Zac Efron, Jonas Brothers, hip-hopped carols.

Mannheim Steamroller

Christmas Symphony

(American Gramaphone)

Sounds Like: Chip Davis has electrified classical music with synths and symphonies for decades, pumping out new-agey, corny versions of classics year after year.

Free Association: Hard to imagine a family that would collectively dig this, but fun to try.

For Fans Of: Kraftwerk x Yanni, Jars of Clay, family Star Trek viewing parties.

Erin McKeown

F*ck That! Erin McKeown’s Anti-Holiday Album


Sounds Like: The perfect balance to a month of listening to the same, tired versions of all the same songs—a batch of hilariously liberal and potty-mouthed holiday diatribes.

Free Association: Tie favorites—“Itsa Very Queer Christmas” or “Visions I Had While High.”

For Fans Of: Ani DiFranco x Neko Case + Feist, awkward family moments (stoned).
