The XX – Islands

I just read this online: “If you wanted to revisit the awkward horniness of your grade-school days, the xx was the right band to listen to.” HA!

The XX are so awkward and haunting and great. Saw them in the spring and I was blown away, although the set was pretty short.. they only have one 30 minute album so I shouldn’t have expected a lot. They have a simple and distinct style and refuse to explore any other sounds. Luckily, it doesn’t even matter. They’re not the first band to do so and they certainly won’t be the last. This is the third single off their first album.
