I'm looking for some recommendations for good nontraditional Christmas music.

Recently I picked up Relient K's "Let It Snow Baby... Let It Reindeer" and Sufjan Stevens' "Songs For Christmas" box set. For those of you not familiar with either, they're basically a collection of traditional Christmas songs performed in nontraditional styles, and also some original Christmas songs that are often offbeat in nature.
I love Christmas music but I get tired of all the schlocky stuff that they play on those 24/7 Christmas stations. I've been really impressed with both of those collections I picked up, and so now I'm looking for some recommendations on similar stuff. It doesn't necessarily have to be similar in style, just in the fact that it's not like everything else out there.
So, AskMeFi, give me your recommendations for the best nontraditional, offbeat, or just "different" Christmas music.
