I was introduced to The xx by my soon to be roommate while playing Zombies the other night. Besides enjoying his companionship, it bodes well that I will find many new musical likes from his collection, and triple bonus, he says he likes to wash the dishes! I like to cook, so that really works out well.
The xx, hailing from England, released their debut album in the summer of 2009. This happens to also be a timely post, because after a 2 year wait, the band (with some switch up in members) is releasing their second album, Coexist, in September. They say the album will be more club influenced. That isn’t entirely surprising given the prominent club scene in England, evidenced by their Olympics closing ceremony.
