The Monday Set: The XX – Baton Rouge – 3/22/2010

One of the nice things about seeing shows in a city like Baton Rouge is that when huge bands come, they end up playing tiny venues.  The XX opened their first US headlining tour here three weeks ago.  There were no more than 200 people in a packed house.  Now a three-piece — keyboardist Baria Qureishi has left the band for good — they played a great set, featuring their entire debut album and two covers.  As a sample, we give you their version of Kyla’s dance song “Do You Mind?”

The xx – Stars (Live)

Every year NYC hosts the College Music Journal Music Marathon (CMJ) where millions of bands swarm on NYC like apocalyptic locusts. After a week of 24-hour rock infestation of every venue in the city, they disperse to their native lands leaving nothing but devastation and hangovers behind Roller coaster tycoon.


Without fail, for any given year, there is always one wet-behind-the-ears band that tends to grab the lion-share of the press attention, and this year’s (very deserving) candidate is The xx fritzing 다운로드. The xx are out of London fresh behind the release of what I bet will ride high on many best of 2009 lists. The xx have a bit of the R&B via London synth vibe that Hot Chip has but with a more sullen, sexually frustrated, down tempo bent Download Jiaizo 2.

The album is on eMusic and I recommend picking it up. Did I forget to mention that The xx feature male/female duets? I have mentioned several times that male/female shared vocals are almost without fail audio gold Download rundll32.exe. This is no exception
