X Marks the Spot... Twice

A fellow music lover suggested I give the xx a listen. Thanks to their male/ female dynamic and their indie London pop sound, I'm hooked. This is ideal "chill" nighttime music, as their tracks have proved reminiscent of every one from Chris Isaak to Radiohead. Their debut album, xx, was released this past September and quickly propelled the band to be placed #6 on the popular UK music magazine New Music Express's "Future 50" list. My favorite tracks? Try listening to "Islands," "Infinity," and "Heart Skipped a Beat."

If you like what you hear and are in the New York area, they are playing the Bowery on November 11th. Check out xx by clicking on the link below.
