Indie/alternative sleigh bells ring; are you listening? To celebrate this winter wonderland of a season, "A Change of Tune" host Joni Deutsch chatted with holiday music hitmakers. First up: Gareth David, otherwise known as the frontman and glockenspiel player for seminal British indie rock band Los Campesinos! The band just released A Los Campesinos! Christmas, a six-song EP that features original holiday tunes and a delightfully bummed out cover of Mud’s “Lonely this Christmas.” If you’re a fan of happy-go-punky holiday music that the whole family can enjoy, this interview and music are recommended for you.

Los Campesinos! released A Los Campesinos! Christmas this past month. You can keep up with the band’s holiday and non-holiday shenanigans on their website and social media. To hear more of their musical winter tidings, tune in to the #HappyIndieHolidays edition of A Change of Tune Saturday December 20 at 10 PM EST on West Virginia Public Radio.
