the xx


Our friends at Beggars recently sent over some extremely promising new demos from four 19-year-olds from South London called The xx. The group recently signed to Beggars imprint Young Turks, and these wistful slow-jams are basically the exact opposite of all the noisy lo-fi stuff I’ve been posting lately. The Womack & Womack cover is especially recommended:

the xx :: teardrops (womack & womack cover)
the xx :: stars (bedroom demo)

The xx’s first 7″ will be out soon, with a debut full-length to follow in September.



Thanks to commenter Rob Z for pointing out this relatively decent quality recording of new song “Ready, Able,” from Grizzly Bear‘s BAM show over the weekend. Also, “Colorado” sounds incredible with the full orchestra.
