Have A Very Modern Christmas! [Music]

So as most everyone probably knows, I am OBSESSED with Christmas music :)  So my iPod is full of it. I of course have the classics: Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, etc...But lately, I've been introduced to a more modern side of Christmas music...

Of course in 2007, Relient K changed my life with their EP, "Let It Snow Baby...Let It Reindeer," however, since then dozens of alternative/indie bands have been following suit and spreading the Christmas cheer.  So what's on my playlist this year?
