The xx

August 28, 2009

Picture 2-1

A friend has been bugging me about The xx.  I got home late tonight and put them on.  Good timing. Their music is made for the last-scotch-of-the-night, winding down, droopy eyelids hour. The sound includes touches of electro, a dash of  soul-bossanova, a little r&b and well-placed guitars all tied together by the guazey boy-girl vocals of Oliver Sim and Romy Croft.  The London 4-piece plays a kind of downer-pop that may go down as my favorite release of the year. Thx QC.

The xx – Crystalised

The xx – Shelter (Them Jeans Drum Edit)

The album will drop on XL on October 20th.  Pre-order here.

What’s your favorite release of ’09 thus far?
