the XX

I never post about music. Mostly because I don’t consider myself to be someone who’s on the cutting edge of new material. I love music, but I love other people to find it for me. But the XX needs a post because I’ve been listening to their album non-stop.

Wait, maybe I will just post one of their videos. Wow! So technological of me.

Take a listen here, on their site, or their myspace page, or on itunes or amazon or wherever you like to buy your music. And buy the whole album because it’s meant to be listened to as a whole, if you ask me.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I was in SUCH a music rut (think Doves, Kingdom of Rust on REPEAT) and this is just what I needed to bust me out of my habit!

    Loooove it.

    Thanks for this post! I've definitely heard this CD somewhere (probably work) but had no idea who it was.

    So I must inform you that I have been stalking your blog pages in secret for some time now. I love this blog, and your lovely photography, and your chickens. So I wanted to finally–at long last–post a comment here to say thanks for all the great stuff you write. I just started my own little blog, and I am def. making you the first blog to go on my new shiny blogroll. =] Keep it up!

    Hi- I don't guess I've ever posted… but since you've gone out of the box, I will too! I just got this album a few weeks ago and absolute LOVE it. So great!

    I JUST discovered them tonight! So awesome. P.S. I love your blog and am a regular reader. It is one of my goals for my 28th year to stop being a blog stalker and show some love for those, like yourself, who make my day, daily.

    I love them! They remind me of a friends band Black Taxxi an up and coming band from Washington State and Germany. Give them a listen, we were ghosts is my favorite song of theirs!
