On The Record is a sucker for Christmas albums. Despite some “bah humbug” feelings about the season in general, we’re quite partial to pop stars making merry with musical ho, ho, hos.

While nothing can dislodge A Christmas Gift for You From Phil Spector from the number one slot in our affections, recent years have seen commendable festive fare from Sufjan Stevens, Low and, this year, Glasvegas.

Irish online label Indiecater are now getting into the game with a 17-strong compilation of seasonally-adjusted songs.

Acts who’ve donned Santa hats and novelty antlers for the occasion include Nina Hynes, Jape, The Very Most, The Cloud Room and My Teenage Stride.
