AllMusic Review by

If you're looking for a different way to celebrate the holiday season, this collection of offbeat Christmas-themed music may be just the thing for you and the hipsters in your life. Festivus, Vol. 2 features 16 different indie rock acts performing Yuletide fare, some offerings originals (Dodgy's dour "Christmas at the Food Bank" or the droll "Baby Jesus Was the First Glam Rocker" by Glam Chops), while others put their own spin on seasonal classics ("God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" gets a ghostly spaghetti western arrangement from Dennis Hopper Choppers, and the Lilys turn "Good King Wenceslas" into pure jangle pop). Sorry, aluminum pole not included.
