The Gavel Groove: Holiday Hidden Gems

Do you hear what I hear? No? Well, you're missing out on all of these underrated holiday tunes! Of course, we appreciate the Nat King Cole classics and Sinatra's crooning vocals, but in a year as atypical as this one, perhaps we need to spice it up a little bit. In this week's Gavel Groove, our lineup ranges from classic Christmas hits by your favorite indie artists to songs you wouldn't normally hear on any holiday playlist (that nonetheless evoke those chilly winter vibes).
