Double X

The xx release their second album, Coexist, today. Somehow I find them an easier band to admire than to love. Their first album was impressive but I never really got into it like I should have. The sound they create, the dubsteppy stuff, the sparse guitars and bass, the space, the twin vocals, are all done very well. This is a bonus track called Reconsider. Which I'm going to try to do.

Likewise. I struggle to really engage with their music.

I love them.

Have been waiting for this album for ages but it didn't turn up this morning and I deliberately haven't listened to anything.

I am really excited about seeing them at the Usher Hall on Wednesday
