UPDATE – Young Turks is labeling this as a deluxe edition, which may not be limited.  We’ve contacted them about pressing numbers and will report back when we’ve got a response.

In 2009, The XX reshaped pop music.  Fact.  Their sparse, lusty self-titled debut became an immediate classic, affecting the musical landscape from Blur to Shakira.  Similar to Young Marble Giants, The XX proved yet again that “a little goes a long way”.  Their sophomore release Coexist, while a bit more polished, followed the same path of melancholy minimalism, and for the next 3 years…it’s been fairly quiet from the band.

Jamie XX is here to appease your hunger and to elongate your tranquility.  His recent single Gosh displayed his knack for making mountains out of the micro, coating a basic drum loop with glimmering drones and synth swoons.  It’s been on repeat in my house since it dropped.

If $37 seems a bit steep, there’s a regular version for you…but trust me, the limited version won’t be around for long.
