12 Days of Hipster Holiday Music: Day 10

On the 10th day of Hipster Christmas my true love gave to me Bright Eyes and Johnny Mathis

When I first heard that Bright Eyes  made a Christmas album a couple of years ago, I had  to stop and think about it. Sometimes Conor Oberst's voice is just so sad sounding, how would that translate into Christmas music? I quickly found out it that translates oh, so, well. "O Little Town of Bethlehem" is one of my favorites from my fellow Mid Westerners. 

Growing up it wasn’t Christmas until the Johnny Mathis cassette came out. Dedicated to the Ghost of Christmas Past, I give you, "Do You Hear What I Hear?"
