The xx


#1

Their new album seems near, but even though i really enjoyed the first two records, i’m not really hyped about this at all.


#2

yeah, it’s not 2009 anymore sadly


#3

Just listen to Colossal Youth instead.


#4

If it’s as good as the debut, hooray.

If it’s as good as Coexist, hmmmm


#5

hard to imagine a more boring band though, isn’t it?


#6

Could be alright, probably won’t be the most interesting thing out there


#7

Would have to do something drastically different to make this worthwhile.


#8

coldplay with dubstep


#9

I really like that Jamie xx calls himself that though. It’s like something from Smash Hits.


#10

Julian Strokes


#11

Alien Revolting Cocks


#12

Billy Pumpkins


#13

Hope the rumours are true and they’ve gone in an electro/dance direction.


#14

I heard it’s going to be more:


#15

Hooray, more background music for BBC shows.


#16

Liked both but it’s a case of diminishing returns. They will need to do a sharp u turn. Would be happy if they just did a straight pop record this time.


#17

I don’t mind their debut. I mean, it’s nothing groundbreaking but she’s got a nice voice and it sits well in the background on a train journey. Like a modern version of Everything But The Girl.

Can’t say I’ll be rushing out for album #3


#18

I knew there would be an XX backlash at some point.

Me : can’t wait.


#19

I put their debut on the other day and it’s still a great record. The ubiquity of that sound isn’t their fault, and they execute it better than almost all peers.

Looking forward to this; whether it’s a departure from or continuation of their sound.
