D//E Playlist: Christmas Tree On Fire

Three years after the groundbreaking success of A Loser's Christmas, our playlist for those who do not care that much about the tropes of conventional holiday music or the festive season itself, we compiled another one with a similar theme and the exact same smack talking attitude towards the year's most celebrated holiday.

Christmas Tree On Fire is comprised of 18 tracks by 18 artists, some of them new, most of them well celebrated acts and a few more offbeat indie selections. What they all have in common is that they approach Christmas with a spirit which isn't so merry and does not represent the point of view of the average human/consumer.

Enjoy, and happy Festivus...
