The xx – Covers
I would love to see this band live. Unfortunately their only London dates appear to be supporting Florence + the Machine, who is so hot right now (Miss Mercury Music Prize nominee that she is) I can’t get tickets. :(
New wave indie with pop/soul influences their music is so chilled out I’m dropping into the depths of lethargy listening to their MySpace player right now.
The full-length debut release is available as a Rough Trade exclusive with a bonus CD that features the tracks I’m about to mention: entirely unexpected and non-karaoke covers of what I know to be a nineties dance track (although I think that itself was a cover of a 80s disco tune) and an R&B gem.
