Established in 2003, XO Publicity’s intent was to work with all genres of music, with the desire to help indie and smaller labels compete in the race to get quality press. Along with press they also offer radio campaigns, with their database including over 15,000 college, indie, webzines, blogs, freelancers, and mainstream contacts. They embrace a grassroots approach to their service.

For the past few years, XO have been compiling their definitive Christmas volumes. This year’s edition is eight tracks from artists you’ll be familiar with from the XO stable, including Piney Gir, and Eaglewolfsnake, just to name two.

You can download XO For The Holidays Volume IX here, and catch up with all the previous volumes here.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
