XO Publicity Holiday Sampler

With the holiday season bearing down on us, we anticipate this holiday themed sampler to be just one of many coming out this month. This time around, the people at XO Publicity are bringing us a 13 song sampler full of Christmasy tunes from artists represented by the company. You can choose to download all tracks or stream them directly from the site. Here’s “Ragtime Manifesto” from The Winter Sounds which may be the only new wave Christmas song I’ve ever heard.
